MONUMENT TO FREEDOM AND EQUALITY
Leipzig, Germany • Finalist, International Design Competition • 2012

How can a monument function today to engage the collective imagination and offer a new vision of the one and the many? The site is re-conceived as a working space, such as a stonemason’s yard, in which the new future is built on the remnants of the past. Our project offers a new vision of individual rights and collective responsibilities in the form of a monument that constructs a unified whole out of many parts.
