"The design concept of the monument was conceived by the late Iraqi architect Khalid Al Rahaal, and was carried out by architects Marcello D’Olivo(Italian) in collaboration with Hisham Munir and his office (Iraqi). The artificial hill is shaped like a low, truncated cone of 250m diameter". Source: ArchNet/AKTC
