I'm proud to present the result of the first step in a series of architectonical designs that will eventually become a first proposal for a global Polynational War Memorial. The first commission was given to Anders Johansson and Erik Wingqvist, who are members of the Swedish architecture firm Testbedstudio.




They designed an Interfaith Centre for this project in September 2005, which will be the complex' main spiritual facility. The Interfaith Centre will be open for practitioners of any faith (as well as atheists), and the spiritual leaders and staff who work there integrated in the memorial complex' educational programs, research teams and negotiation processes.

The next design projects are already underway. At the moment the architect group Servo, with offices in Los Angeles, New York, Stockholm and Zürich has started working on the complex' main memorial and the last architects to have been invited is the Berlin based group Raumlabor that will design the university and museum complex.

I'm also happy to announce the cooperation with composer Fred Saboonchi, who will create soundtracks for the final presentation of the project next year.
