Atlantic City Boardwalk Holocaust Memorial

Design Competition

iscrizioni entro 15.02.10 | consegna entro 15.03.10

An open design competition is being sponsored by the Atlantic City Boardwalk Holocaust Memorial organization (ACBHM, Inc.), a private non-profit foundation chartered for the purpose of erecting the Memorial, in co-operation with the City of Atlantic City, which has dedicated a superb site for this purpose. Our competition will be advertised nationally and internationally, and juried by a world class panel of experts in the field of architecture and design. Responses are welcomed from throughout the world.

The competition is an open, two-stage design competition. At the first stage, digital submission of the design concept will be online only. These will be judged anonymously by members of our distinguished Jurors, who may choose six to ten finalists. Each finalist will be awarded an honorarium of $2,500 to develop a three-dimensional model and a fully realized scheme for the site. All final presentations will be publicly exhibited and judged at a convocation of the Jurors, and the winner will be declared at a public ceremony.

This competition seeks to stimulate fresh thinking about public memorials, and invites ideas from diverse fields. The requirements for the Memorial and how it occupies the site are as unconstrained as possible. Participants are encouraged to contemplate the meaning of the Holocaust and genocide in our lives today, and to invent a fitting design for this time and this place. We look to our competitors to propose the appropriate metaphors and forms for such a Memorial.

Competition is open to architects, landscape architects, city planners, sculptors, artists, designers, and others, either individually or in collaboratiion. A reduced fee for students currently enrolled in a degree granting program is available. This project is viewed as an excellent opportunity for a multi-disciplinary approach, involving diverse collaboration, but the formation of a collaborative team is not a requirement. There are no age, geographic or residency requirements; however, requests for information and written materials accompanying entries must be in English. The competition will be conducted anonymously, without regard to race, religion, sex, ancestry, creed or naitional origin.
