German architects Jan Kleihues and Johannes Kressner became the winners of the competition for the best project of the Museum of the Revolution of Dignity and the memorial complex of Heavenly Hundred Heroes. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine.
"Together with Johannes, we witnessed the events when Berlin was divided into the eastern and western parts, and probably, if this revolution had not happened, we would not have what we have now. Therefore, having this experience, we have resigned to the process of developing the architectural project of the Museum of your Revolution with great respect, " Jan Kleihues said at a briefing in Kyiv.
"This combination is reflected in the niches, which will later be located along the Alley of the Heavenly Hundred Heroes, where there will be monuments that people themselves made in honor of the dead Heroes. It is especially pleasant to realize that the idea we tried to lay was read by jury members in the evaluation of the project. In particular, it is the idea of an inclined ram, which eventually transforms the museum into the final point of the memory’s way, "the authors say.
As Hromadske.tv reports, the second place was taken by Ukrainians Anton Oliynyk and Oleksiy Pakhomov from ‘Buro/architects’, and the third prize went to the project of the French architect Lina Ghotmeh.
According to the media, an exhibition of competitive projects for the Museum of the Revolution of Dignity will be open from July 13 to August 13, 2018 at the House Of Architect in Kyiv.
As it was reported earlier, Ukraine’s Ministry of Culture has announced a competition for the best project proposal for the National Memorial Complex of Heavenly Hundred Heroes - the Museum of Revolution of Dignity.
The participants of the competition were to present the project proposal of the memorial space in memory of the Heavenly Hundred Heroes, develop a project proposal for the building of Museum of the Revolution of Dignity, which should have museum and cultural and educational functions, and develop public space as a component of the complex.
