Following a global Expressions of Interest in September, the British Government recently announced the teams that will compete to design the National Holocaust Memorial proposed for the Victoria Tower Gardens near Parliament. After receiving nearly 100 entries from 26 countries, the jury — which includes Communities Secretary Sajid Javid; Mayor of London Sadiq Khan; Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis; and broadcaster Natasha Kaplinsky — shortlisted 10 star-studded teams.
Moving forward, the teams will be invited to submit designs for the National Memorial and a possible underground Learning Centre. With Malcolm Reading Consultants as adviser, the jury will evaluate the entries based on technical, financial, planning and other constraints.
