Canada’s National Holocaust Monument, Ottawa, Canada
Canada’s National Holocaust Monument opened in October 2017 in the capital city of Ottawa. The competition-winning scheme by Studio Libeskind, New York, commemorates victims of the Nazi genocide and recognizes the 40,000 survivors who made it to Canada.
This new open-air, poured-concrete pavilion forms a public place of respite and reflection. The design pays homage to the studio’s seminal Jewish Museum in Berlin, complete in 1999. Each has few right angles, and both are designed to create a sense of unease that is relevant to the history they evoke. The structure sits across the street from the Canadian War Museum (2008) by Moriyama & Teshima with Griffiths Rankin Cook.

These Korean skyscraper buildings form a mixed-use development that consists of three 41 story residential towers, (a total of 834 total residential units). The design is “inspired by the traditional Korean Buddhist Dance known as Seung-Moo. The subtle rotation of the towers creates the illusion they are dancing, as inspired by the long sleeves of the Seung-Moo dancer’s traditional costumes, gracefully propelled by the dancer’s movements”.
