Public feedback invited on all schemes, with winner announced this summer
Ten multidisciplinary teams have been shortlisted for an international competition to design a Holocaust memorial for Victoria Tower Gardens beside the Palace of Westminster.
Gustafson Porter + Bowman is involved with two schemes, one led by Adjaye Associates and Ron Arad Architects, and the other by Ireland’s heneghan peng architects. Likewise Martha Schwartz Partners, who is working with Studio Libeskind and Haptic Architects, and Diamond Schmitt Architects.
Also members of shortlisted teams are Olin Studio with Allied Works; Sophie Walker Studio with Anish Kapoor and Zaha Hadid Architects; Vogt Landscape Architects with Caruso St John Architects; Lily Jencks Studio with John McAslan + Partners; Hemgård Landscape Design from Finland with Lahdelma & Mahlamäki Architects and David Morley Architects; and David Bonnett Associates with Foster + Partners.
The new memorial will honour the victims and survivors of Nazi persecution, creating a place of learning and reflection. Subject to financial and technical considerations, an underground learning centre may also be built.
The first stage of the competition drew 92 entries, and the winner is expected to be announced in the summer. Members of the public are also invited to submit feedback by emailing email@example.com or visiting the government website. Comments will be passed on to the competition jury.
