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 projects 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.
The competition seeks ideas that underline Lviv’s unique history, and calls for visions that go beyond the narrow and sometimes controversial historical debate: a multi-disciplined approach with wide public outreach is therefore required. These ideas are to reflect the history of the site (or sites) through architectural, landscape or other design proposals and help Lviv inhabitants to discover the history of people who lived here before. Submissions should also show how the site (or sites) can be integrated into the contemporary urban context to benefit the life of the city.
Entrants can chose to enter one or more of the following competitions:
Competition for the Synagogue Square

  • The site where the Great City Synagogue, the Beth Hamidrash and the Turei Zahav (“Golden Rose” or Nachmanovych Synagogue) stood

Competition for the Besojlem Memorial Park
