Competition for the Synagogue Square Site
International Design Competition for the Sites of Jewish History in Lviv includes three separate competitions for three spaces in the city that have important connections to the life of Jewish community before the Second World War, and to its destruction during the Nazi occupation. Competitors are asked to submit ideas for each or all of three sites in the city.
The main purpose of the competition is to draw public attention to multiethnic past of the city and help top preserve its multicultural heritage. The competition has two distinct, but interconnected agendas. One is to find the best projects for the better use of the three open public spaces to improve quality of life for the contemporary inhabitants and visitors of Lviv. The other one is to respond to the emerging awareness of Lviv’s multi-ethnic past by contributing to the rediscovery of the city’s Jewish heritage and to enhance and promote this emerging awareness by through the visualization and creation of spaces that commemorate the heritage of the city’s almost completely vanished Jewish community.
- To create conditions for the better use of the site as a public space for the benefit of local residents, visitors and the city as a whole
- To underline the multicultural heritage of the city and the part the Jewish community once played in it
- To signify the lost heritage of the Jewish people
- To reflect the meaning of this place in Jewish history
- To memorialize the buildings that once stood here, and which played an important role in the religious and cultural life of Lviv’s Jewish community
- To enhance the openness and tolerance of the inhabitants of contemporary Lviv
