[Requests to participate must be received by 16 December 2011] Leipzig City Council is on the hunt for architects and landscape architects to design a ‘monument to Freedom and Unity’ in the centre of the German city
The monument is planned to commemorate the city’s peaceful protests in 1989 and is set to be located inside a 20,000m² area on Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz.
The project has a construction budget of 6.5 million Euros and is planned to start on site in July 2012. A shortlist of 40 entrants will be selected and invited to submit proposals.
A total of 175,000 Euros has been allocated to the competition which will be split between a prize fund and paying the participants’ expenses.
The monument will be inaugurated 9 October 2014 in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the peaceful protest. The area will also be re-named ´Platz der Friedlichen Revolution’.
