Antoine Predock's Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Postby Paul Clerkin » Tue Apr 19, 2005 4:26 am

Antoine Predock has been announced as the winner of the International Architectural Design Competition for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Chosen by an international Architectural Review Committee, the design was seen by the committee as one that "could fulfill the objectives for an inspirational building that achieves a complexity relating to the diversity of human experience."

The announcement culminates an international design competition launched in 2003 to which 62 firms from 21 countries and 5 continents responded. After an extensive review process that included the input of an independent technical review committee, the Predock design was chosen from three finalists including Dan Hanganu & the Arcop Group and Saucier + Perrotte Architectes.

Our question is, what do you think of this design. Will it succeed as a landmark or is the devil in the detail and it will promise much but ultimately fail to deliver?
