Kaira Looro Competition for
Peace Pavillon in Africa
In memory of the innocent victims of war in Africa
“Peace is a dream, it can become a reality…
but to build it we must be capable of dreaming.”
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.
