Ghost Architectural Laboratory in Upper Kingsburg, Nova Scotia by Mackay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects Limited

The Ghost Laboratory is sited at the LaHave River estuary on Nova Scotia’s Atlantic coast, where Samuel de Champlain made his first landfall in the new world in 1604. This landscape was re-cleared from forest by the architect over the past 25 years, revealing its historic ruins and its 400 years of agrarian history.

Wheel Of Conscience in Nova Scotia, Canada by Studio Daniel Libeskind

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Article source: Studio Daniel Libeskind

The tragic story of the M.S. St. Louis, a ship carrying Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany that the Canadian government turned away in 1939, is represented by The Wheel of Conscience. The wheel is driven by gears – symbolic of the gears of a ship’s engine and the gears of a cynical bureaucracy. On the rim of the large wheel is the description of the tragedy of the M.S. St. Louis. It is surrounded by the map of the world displaying the ship’s route on the cylinder. On the reverse side of the memorial are etched in the metal the names of all the passengers.
