Proposed Holocaust memorial

Wikipedia has a list of all the Holocaust Memorials and Museums currently in existence:

You can read about the new proposed Holocaust memorial in this news article: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/oct/07/imperial-war-museum-holocaust-memorial-london

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Plans to erect a national Holocaust memorial next to parliament [in England] have become embroiled in controversy, only weeks before the winning design is due to be announced.

The £50m memorial and education centre, initiated in 2013 by David Cameron when he was prime minister, has attracted some of the biggest names in art and architecture, including Norman Foster, Daniel Libeskind, Anish Kapoor and Rachel Whiteread. A jury to select the winning entry has met and an announcement from the UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation is expected this month.

But in an extraordinary intervention, the Imperial War Museum (IWM) is calling for the plan for an educational complex below the memorial to be reconsidered because it will compete with its own new Holocaust centre, opening in 2020, less than a mile away.

Meanwhile, people who live near the memorial’s site – Victoria Tower Gardens, next to the houses of parliament and on the banks of the Thames – are stepping up objections to the proposal. They say it would mean the loss of much-valued green space, increase pollution and traffic, and require a heavy security presence.

Can someone please explain this design to me. It looks like a giant ice cream cone that has been dropped and the ice cream is melting.
