Daniel Libeskind and David Adjaye, along with four other shortlisted teams, are competing to design the National Holocaust Monument in Canada. Planned to be built in a prominent site in the heart of Ottawa, near the Canadian War Museum, the $4.5 million monument is expected for completion in 2015.

The jury, made up of internationally renowned art and design professionals, a representative from the National Holocaust Monument Development Council and a Holocaust survivor, chose the following six teams as finalists:

  • Architect and urban designer Hossein Amanat with artist Esther Shalev-Gerz, landscape architect Daniel Roehr, architect and project manager Robert Kleyn, and architect David Lieberman (Vancouver, BC).
  • Leslie M. Klein of Quadrangle Architects, Jeffrey Craft of SWA Group, Alan Schwartz of Terraplan, artist Yael Bartana, artist Susan Philipsz, artist Chen Tamir, and Holocaust scholars Dr. Debórah Dwork and Jeffrey Koerber (Toronto, Ontario).
  • Museum planner Gail Lord, architect Daniel Libeskind, artist Edward Burtynsky, landscape architect Claude Cormier, and Holocaust scholar Dr. Doris Berger (Toronto, Ontario).
  • Gilles Saucier of Saucier+Perrotte and artist Marie-France Brière (Montreal, Quebec).
  • Art historian and curator Irene Szylinger, architect David Adjaye, artist/architect Ron Arad (Toronto, Ontario/London, UK).
  • Artist Krzysztof Wodiczko and architect Julian Bonder (Cambridge, Massachusetts).

The final teams are expected to present detailed plans by the end of the year. A winner will be announced next spring.
