Carved History is an artistic and conceptual show where the artists/architects are free to use their creative imagination in designing the memorial place. For this project they are not limited by the details of location, size, materials or budget as they typically encounter. However two requests have been made: one is to use the recovered headstones, and the other is that the general location of the memorial site shall be within the area known as the Shanghai Jewish Ghetto In the city’s Hongkou district.

James Brearly BAU
Edgar Budoy EDAW
Silas Chiow SOM
Christopher Choa HLW
