National Holocaust Monument
The $7M, 50,000 sq. ft. Holocaust memorial project is a significant piece of architecture and urban design in Ottawa.
Covering 3/4 of an acre, its design features a large gathering space for ceremonies with room for 1,000 people enclosed by six triangular, concrete segments to create the points of a star.
Custom form-liner and self-consolidating concrete were used to create a photo-engraved wall.
The structure is composed of skewed and sloping architecturally exposed reinforced concrete walls and galvanized steel frames with expanded metal mesh cladding.
