The ideology of totalitarian communism and its injuries are still not properly evaluated. After the collapse of the Soviet Union and totalitarian communist system at the end of the 20th century, the time has come for this debt to be paid. The Memorial will remind of the people's resistance, commemorate those who suffered, and admonish the future generations against letting ideologies similar to totalitarian communism return and become weapons of the state policy.
By this contest of artists and architects, the Ministry of Culture and the Riga City Council hope to obtain propositions that will respect the openness of the Strelnieku Square towards the river Daugava - the central axis of Riga's urban composition, will unite the qualities of the historic and modern urban space in a new dimension and consider the existing Occupation Museum and its extension, designed by G. Birkerts, as a conformable, spatial, functional and protocolar components of the new Memorial. We hope that the contestants will take advantage of the possibility to transform the level of the land's surface (a new underground parking lot will be designed in the Strelnieku Square taking into account the ideas of the contestants) and will use modern technologies and materials.
