Vast international competition expected as search for tsunami memorial gets underway

  • Comment
The government of Thailand has launched an international competition to find a design for a memorial for the victims of the tsunami on Boxing Day 2004.

In what will certainly become one of the highest-profile competitions of recent years, the Thai authorities are determined to create a memorial to remember the hundreds of thousands of people who died in the disaster.

In a bizarre twist, the competition brief demands that the winning scheme should not only be 'appropriate' but also 'interactive'.

The worldwide search for the winning concept is open to all architects, designers and artists around the world.

The competition is being arranged over two stages, with those who make it through to the second round picking up a $25,000 (£14,000) honorarium.
