In the wake of the tsunami disaster in South East Asia on 26th December 2004, the Norwegian Government has put The National Foundation for Art in Public Buildings in charge of a memorial site in Norway to honour the victims.

The Memorial Site is to be open and inclusive to all people – independent of nationality or religion. The purpose of the site is to be a space for mourning and contemplation for those who have experienced dramatic events in their lives. The memorial site is to be an art/architectural project. It will be located somewhere on the Western shoreline of the Bygdøy peninsular, in Oslo.
