MVRDV - The Lens

The Lens

The Lens

The Lens is MVRDV’s competition proposal for Canada’s LGBTQ2+ National Monument, dedicated to Canada’s Queer community – in particular those who endured what is now termed the LGBT Purge. Located on a sheltered 6300 m2 site facing the majestic Ottawa River, just a few steps from the Parliament Buildings to the east and Chaudière Falls to the west, the Monument and park are a place for education, memorialization, celebration, and inspiration.
