answer text <p>Millbank Tower was considered as a possible site for the Memorial and Learning Centre. The proposal was tied to the development of the wider site: to date, there is no evidence of redevelopment coming forward and occupational office leases have now been extended to 2022. Victoria Tower Gardens was preferred by the UKHMF Board as the outstanding candidate site for the following reasons:</p><ul><li>its relevance as a commemorative garden of Britain’s national conscience, already containing significant memorial sculptures, marking momentous historic events, with significance for the struggle for human rights, that remain relevant today and will do so in the future;</li><li>it provides an iconic location adjoining Parliament, sitting along the riverfront immediately next to the House of Lords;</li><li>it is visually prominent and adjacent to one of the most visited parts of London, within easy reach of a major tube station and many bus routes;</li><li>the resonance of being next to Parliament and on the timeless banks of the Thames is exceptional; and</li><li>under the shadow of Victoria Tower, the Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre would question the impacts of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides on our own Parliament.</li></ul>

answer text <p>On 14 September 2016 a press release from the Department of Communities and Local Government and the UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation announced the start of an architectural design competition for the new Holocaust Memorial in Victoria Tower Gardens. The press release explained that design teams were invited to submit initial expressions of interest in the project, with shortlisted teams then submitting 2-part designs, the first fulfilling the minimum commitment of a striking new national memorial, and the second including the below-ground learning centre to be taken forward subject to technical, financial, planning or other constraints.</p><p>Following the successful conclusion of the design competition, a further press release on 24 October 2017 announced that Adjaye Associates, Ron Arad Architects and the landscape architects Gustafson Porter + Bowman had been selected to design the UK’s new Holocaust Memorial and a co-located Learning Centre.</p><p> </p> more like this
