Kaira Looro Architecture Competition 2019 Edition

Peace Pavilion



“Peace is a dream, it can become a reality… but to build it we must be capable of dreaming.” (Nelson Mandela)

Intercultural hostility and the exploitation of resources on the African continent have triggered a succession of armed conflicts resulting in millions of innocent lives lost and refugees seeking hope in a better life elsewhere. Communities annihilated. Villages and cities torn to the ground. Nations in chaos. Remembering the victims through the universal value of peace can help to lay the foundation for the creation of an inclusive and cohesive society. Contemplation, memory, and compassion are the values that commemorative architecture must convey in order to build a better world.
