With the future in such a state of uncertainty and political
relationships more strained than ever, there is one silent threat that
could end up being more deadly and dangerous to humanity than a hundred
pandemics: nuclear weapons. 

In 1945, the US bombed Hiroshima and
Nagasaki, effectively ending World War II and killing well over 100,000
people, the majority of whom were civilians. The bombing of Nagasaki
was the second and final time a country deployed a nuclear weapon in
combat. However, it wasn’t the last nuclear explosion, as testing of
controlled explosions continued for years. 

On the 75th
anniversary of the bombing, Nagasaki Mayor Tomihisa Taue called on
Japanese President Shinzo Abe and the central government to sign and
ratify the 2017 United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear
Weapons. However, there has been little if any official progress towards
an international ban on nuclear weapons since then. 

We support
the call for a ban on nuclear weapons, and as the threat of nuclear bombs
is ever-present, we are continuing our annual architecture competition
to create “The Last Nuclear Bomb Memorial / Edition No 2“.

For this architecture competition, participants are tasked with creating a memorial in a decommissioned nuclear weapon testing site. In response to the global silence surrounding the issue of nuclear weapons, participants in “The Last Nuclear Bomb Memorial / Edition No 2” competition must submit their designs with NO DESCRIPTION TEXT. The architecture ideas must be communicated strictly with visuals. We are asking participants to design a building or structure in which the architecture would do all the talking.
