Architect Zaha Hadid recently revealed the design of the Sleuk Rith Institute in Cambodia; a center for the commemoration of the Khmer Rouge era. The new institute will not only house the vast archives but also provide educational and cultural platforms including a graduate school focusing on human rights, a library and a museum as well as a contemporary arts forum. Zaha Hadid explains that the vision of director Youk Chhang and the international team has been inspirational and that they together share the wish of this institution to be part of the process ‘to heal and reconnect a country’.
