Canadian Museum for Human Rights Competition
Project Title
Canadian Museum for Human Rights Competition
The vision for the project was to create a distinctive, architecturally exceptional museum that will help to eliminate intolerance through recognition of human rights as the foundation for human equality, dignity, and freedom worldwide. The museum has made groundbreaking history, as it will be the largest and perhaps only human rights museum in the world. The issue of human rights is of such a worldwide concern that the decision was made to conduct an international architectural competition to select an architect and design for this important project. Ultimately, the competition was won by Dan Hanganu Architects and The Arcop Group.
