architecture vision competition RED SQUARE TOLERANCE PAVILION

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.

This new pavilion is to be conceived as a structure incorporating educational spaces, with lecture and workshop rooms as well as exhibition spaces. Participants are also urged to consider other recreational and public spaces to support these educational programs.

All scales and materials are admitted but the structure must be de-mountable. Most importantly, the pavilion should conceptually deconstruct ideas for tolerance, remembering those who were victims of fanaticism and representing those who firmly defend and believe in a future without violence against any minority.

While the pavilion is meant to be temporary, entries will be judged on their ability to leave enduring social and political footprints.
