Baltic Way Memorial

HMMD international architecture competition

iscrizioni entro il 9 dicembre 2015 | consegna entro il 30 dicembre 2015

HMMD Architecture Competitions lancia un nuovo concorso di architettura per raccogliere idee per un memoriale dedicato ai due milioni di manifestanti, una lunga catena umana 600 km, che protestarono contro il dominio dell'Unione Sovietica senza il ricorso alla violenza.

HMMD Architecture Competitions is tasking participants with creating designs for a memorial building for the Baltic Way movement which protested freedom without resorting to violence.

The strong yet powerful act in which 2 million protestors joined hands and formed a 600km long human chain in unity against Soviet Union rule showed just how effective nonviolent protest can be. In this competition architecture enthusiasts are being asked to create a memorial building that, while being functional, will be mainly symbolic in nature. It's a chance for architects and designers to create plans for a monumental structure that shows the strength nonviolent actions have when used to fight for people's beliefs.

Competition is open for all. No professional qualification is required. Design proposals can be developed individually or by teams (4 team members maximum).
