The Estonian Institute of Historical Memory invites you to participate in the competition to find an architectural and interior architectural design concept for the International Museum of the Crimes of Communism and its exposition. The documents announcing the call for submissions to the competition are hereby issued to you.
The aim of the competition is to work out a contemporary, attractive and visitor-friendly design solution for the International Museum of the Crimes of Communism (the so-called Red Terror Museum). The International Museum of the Crimes of Communism is an institution in the process of being established that will be housed in a naval fortress that was built in the mid-19th century. In light of the deeds of the 20th century totalitarian regimes that used the building as a prison, Patarei is a tragic and admonitory symbol. The competition’s working area does not include the entire building but rather only the area that is to be allotted to the museum. Roughly 5,000 m2 of interior net floor space is available for use, to which potential outdoor areas may be added.
