Kigali Memorial Centre

The Kigali Memorial Centre was established on the 10th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide, in April 2004.  Built on a site where many thousands of victims of the genocide are buried, the Centre serves as a permanent memorial to those who fell victim to the genocide.  A phased masterplan by the practice is providing expanded facilities for the site, including new entrance and education elements, and extensive re-landscaping that creates a place of shared memory that counters genocidal ideology.  The first phase of the masterplan was completed in Spring 2014, marking the 20th anniversary of the genocide.
