Beaconfire is honored to be a part of a new institution and genocide memorial underway in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh. The Sleuk Rith Institute is the vision of human rights activist and investigator of the Khmer Rouge atrocities, Youk Chhang. “We have to live with a long, dark shadow,” says Chhang. “We cannot escape it, but we shouldn’t be enslaved by it. I want the institute to bring something new and hopeful, and get us out of the mindset of being victims.”

Focused on reflection, healing and reconciliation, the stunning architecture was designed by world renowned architect Zaha Hadid. Beaconfire was honored to design and build the organization’s web site. The website’s immersive design is meant to showcase the unique vision and breath taking architecture.
