Montreal Holocaust Museum has won a WAFX award


The new Montreal Holocaust Museum has won the WAFX award in the Cultural Identity category alongside its shortlisting for a WAF Award in the Future Projects: Culture category. 

As part of the World Architecture Festival, the WAFX Awards celebrates international projects that are forward-looking and seek to address some of the world’s most pressing issues, from climate change and social inequality to building resilient communities. 

Designed in collaboration with KPMB, with contributions from scholars Robert Jan van Pelt – renowned Holocaust historian – and Sherry Simon – professor specializing in the language and cultural history of Jewish Montreal -, the new building will have multiple exhibition spaces, classrooms, an auditorium, a memorial garden, and a dedicated survivor testimony room. 

The project will be presented during the 2023 WAF Awards, held in Singapore from November 29 – December 1.
