The ”Elie Wiesel” National Institute for the Study of the Holocaust in Romania announces the organization of a solution contest regarding the design of the permanent exhibition and the auxiliary spaces of the National Museum of the History of the Romanian Jewry and the Holocaust.
In September 2016, by Government Decision, the “Elie Wiesel” National Institute for the Study of the Holocaust in Romania was tasked with the organization, coordination, and creation of the National Museum of the History of the Romanian Jewry and the Holocaust.
The purpose of the National Museum of the History of the Romanian Jewry and the Holocaust is to present and promote the history, culture, and traditions of the Jewish communities in Romania and to educate local and international audiences on this national minority’s contributions to the evolution and development of Romanian society over time.
The mission is to challenge and inspire audiences through the discovery of the past, to encourage understanding of history, and give impetus to make an important step towards accountability and tolerance. The design contest aims at selecting the best solution for developing a new spatial and design concept of the National Museum of Jewish History and of the Holocaust in Romania, in order to award the design contract.
The objective is to create a modern museum, an educational and cultural center that represents a platform for civic and intercultural dialogue. They also want the museum to offer a unique experience to the visitor and impose a new standard in the perception of the culture and history of the Jewish community.
A contestant may submit only 1 project.
The winner will be announced on December 14, 2020.
