Organization hosts design contest for Holocaust memorial
on Monday,March 01,2010 22:03
The Atlantic City Boardwalk Holocaust Memorial corporation has opened the entry process for its memorial design contest, which will challenge current and prospective architects from across the globe to create an original plan for a monument.
Qualified entrants are invited to create an original design for a memorial that could be erected on a 60' by 40' site on the city's boardwalk, according to the contest's website. The monument should be accessible to many types of individuals, as project officials expect that hundreds of thousands of tourists will visit the memorial each year.
In addition, the design should serve as an outlet for visitors who wish to reflect, converse, contemplate, discuss and learn about the Holocaust.
The competition is open to architects, landscape architects, city planners, sculptors, artists and designers who may choose to work in teams or individually to devise their plans.
February 15 is the deadline to mail submissions and a $100 processing fee - $50 for students - for the first phase of the competition. A panel of judges will select finalists to receive a $2,500 stipend to create 3D models of their designs.
