JMP Present National Holocaust Memorial to public and competition jury

On Sunday 17 September, John McAslan and Design Partner Hannah Lawson presented the practice's concept at the V&A to both the public and later to the competition jury, including Mayor of London, Sadiq Kahn and Chief Rabbi, Ephraim Mirvis. John and Hannah were joined by collaborators Michael Murphy of MASS Design Group and Lily Jencks to present the concept which in their words, aims to 'memorialise loss while also creating a sanctuary which relates to its civic surroundings - an environment where spatial gravity is engrossing and where civility, knowledge and personal reactions coexist.'

The Architects' Journal commented on all ten short-listed proposals. Merlin Fulcher described JMP's concept as "architecturally and conceptually stunning. It is compact, meaningful, inviting and challenging. There are obvious questions over how the visitation stones will work in practice but it is clear the proposal has created a unique bridge to translate the tragedy and its survivors’ stories into a far-reaching commitment to a better future."
