Peace Bridge | Environmental Design

The Peace Bridge honors the soldiers that fought in World War II, regardless of nationality. For some, peace is the lack of war. After research, the term war comes from the old english werra, which means confusion. Therefore peace is understanding. As such, my bridge represents Peace through Understanding. It presents circular forms in different sizes which represent the different levels of emotions felt throughout the war. All of these emotions are imbalanced, and as such the bridge is not symmetric. Finally, the emotions reach a climax in the hollow circular form, where understanding is met and peace is achieved, which flows down to the earth.
