Comparing the memorial with an ear that connects visitors with all the voices and testimonies of those who experienced the holocaust. Visitors descend from the gardens through a series of thresholds and passages, encountering individual voices as they form a collective, of those who speak of past horrors and the grave risk of authoritarianism and barbarism returning today.

The aproach of the architects aims to unearth the complexity of the holocaust story, which they saw as a series of layers that have become hidden by time. To do that, they expose these layers through an organic living monument that evolves over time, capable of both affecting and being affected by its users.

Anish Kapoor and Zaha Hadid Architects

Inspired by the Jewish tradition where they used natural elements in the center of places of reflexion, they choose meteorites, mountains, and stones to make part of the memorial. For them, a memorial to the holocaust must be contemplative and silent, such that it evokes our empathy. It must be a promise to future generations that this terrible chapter in human history can never occur again.

Caruso St. John Architects

Choosing a totally different approach, the architects focused on the survivors, the ones living and have stories to tell. The proposal consists of two parts – a cast, translucent sculpture above ground and a series of large chambers below ground. the sculpture brings natural light into the largest and most memorable of these spaces — the ‘hall of voices’ — where visitors will hear the accounts of holocaust survivors.

This proposal reveals the power of the opposing forces that created the descent into a horror of hitherto unimaginable scale, and a humanity of unlimited compassion and selfless commitment.  The architecture suitable to serve the purposes of remembrance and caution against the repeat of intolerance, is one of restraint, yet notable form.

Foster + Partners and Michal Rovner

The architects propose to create a ramp descending to the earth, evocating the rain tracks that terminated in the camps or the brown brick-lined corridors leading down to the gas chambers. That ramp will let you to the memorial, where projected images of an endless procession of human figures resonate with exodus or a human text that seems to go on forever like the unspoken testimonies.

Studio Libeskind and Haptic Architects

The memorial aims to communicate a shadow that has been cast forever on the history of civilization. Since there is no redemptive meaning in the holocaust, visitors carry this shadow with them as they journey underground. A dark, reflective metal plane cuts into the sky.

John McAslan + Partners and MASS Design Group

In the Jewish tradition, when someone visits their death beloved ones they normally leave a stone at the grave, symbolizing the respect and love for this person. In a tragedy where near 6 million Jews died, the scheme from the architects places 6 million stones placed in the center of the London representing each one who died during the holocaust.

Providing information and evidence as well as an emotional and narrative experience about the era of the holocaust, the proposal of these architects is a composition of two arcs facing each other and a water pool. the first arc describes the holocaust, the other describes how it was experienced in the UK.

Their proposal for the memorial was a creation of a sacred space to serve the voices of survivors. It will rise from the grounds of Victoria Tower Gardens, woven into the daily life of London.
