Edward Burtynsky part of Lord Cultural Resources team chosen to design Canada’s National Holocaust Monument

Edward Burtynsky is part of a renowned team chosen to design Canada's National Holocaust Monument. The monument will be a permanent, national symbol to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and recognise Canadian survivors. Constructed from six triangular concrete volumes, the site will create the points of a star, a symbol that millions of Jews were for forced to wear throughout the war. Original monochromatic photographs of Holocaust sites will be imbedded into the concrete walls of each space, creating unique photographic installations that will change with the light and movement of viewers. Working alongside Burtynsky to realise the project will be renowned architect Daniel Libeskind, Quebec-based landscape architect Claude Cormier and University of Toronto Holocaust scholar Doris Bergen. The monument will be an architecture, art and landscape experience scheduled to open in Autumn 2015.
