National Holocaust Monument Finalists

A group with Vancouver representation is among the six finalist teams chosen in the final phase of the Canadian National Holocaust Monument competition. The two-phase national competition invited teams of architects, artists and other design professionals from around the globe to develop design concepts for the National Holocaust Monument to be built in Ottawa. The B.C.-based contingent includes Hossein Amanat Architect AIBC and Robert Kleyn Architect AIBC, along with University of Toronto Associate Professor David Lieberman OAA AAA MRAIC RIBC, landscape architect Daniel Roehr and artist Esther Shalev-Gerz. The monument is intended to honour victims and survivors of the holocaust and ensure a permanent place in the national consciousness and memory. Final project designs will go before the competition jury this early in 2014.
