Six finalists listed for last phase of the Canadian National Holocaust Monument competition
Posted: Wednesday, October 30, 2013 |

Six finalist teams were invited to develop design concepts for the National Holocaust Monument that will be built in the Canadian capital of Ottawa. The two-phase national competition began with a Call for Qualifications in May 2013.

The teams — which had to be led by a Canadian citizen — consist of architects, artists and other design professionals from around the globe. Some notable architecture team members include David Adjaye, Daniel Libeskind, Gilles Saucier of Saucier+Perrotte, and Jeffrey Craft of SWA Group.

The competition jury features internationally acclaimed art and design professionals, a representative from the National Holocaust Monument Development Council, and a Holocaust survivor.

Listed below are the six finalists.
