architecture vision competition RED SQUARE TOLERANCE PAVILION

HMMD‘s newest architecture vision competition is dedicated to ‘designing for tolerance’. It challenges designers from around the globe to propose a temporary pavilion for the education of social, political and religious tolerance, to be erected in Russia’s Red Square, Moscow.
