OTTAWA, Feb. 17, 2014 /CNW/ - Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, and John Baird, Minister of Foreign Affairs, invite the public to view the six final design concepts for the future National Holocaust Monument, which will be located in Ottawa.
The public viewing will take place on Thursday, February 20 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. in the lobby of the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa. The public is invited to come meet the design teams and share their comments on the designs.
A seven-member jury composed of accomplished professionals in the fields of art and urban design, a Holocaust survivor, and representation from the National Holocaust Monument Development Council will recommend the winning design team to the Government of Canada. Comments from the public will be shared with the jury prior to making the final recommendation to the Government of Canada.
- In May 2013, teams of professional artists, architects, landscape architects and other design professionals were invited to submit their credentials and examples of prior work in the first stage of a two-phase design competition.
- Six teams were chosen to move forward to develop monument concepts as part of the competition's second phase.
- The future National Holocaust Monument will be prominently located in the core of Canada's Capital at the corner of Wellington and Booth Streets. The monument site faces the iconic Canadian War Museum.
- The official inauguration of the main elements of the monument is scheduled for fall 2015.
"I am pleased with the high calibre of the teams that have answered our
call through this national design competition. The future National
Holocaust Monument will be a lasting symbol for Canadians and visitors
to Canada's Capital region to remember the horror of the Holocaust and
how it affected our history."
- Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages
"We are one step closer to confirming which team will build the new
National Holocaust Monument. This commemoration project will promote a
better understanding of the historical events of the Holocaust and how
they have affected Canadian history—an understanding that will benefit
Canadians in every community across the country."
- John Baird, Minister of Foreign Affairs
