The Garden Of Peace
Memorial Public Garden. The story is about the massacre that happened during the Civil war in Syria at august 16th 2013. Location: Syria, Homs, Al-Meshtayee. Victims: 9 people passed away. 5 military soldiers and 4 civilians (3 Boys and 1 young girl). The massacre happened in area between Islamic and Christian villages. Although all those people used to work and love each other but after the war they start hating each other which is a terrible situation.
My Philosophy: For the plan I took lines from where were we trapped, ISIS and the massacre place.Every side will have metallic tubes like we are trapped in this land and we have to find a way to live and respect one another. And water around the garden means life. I choose to put 1 cherry blossom tree symbolizing feminine because only 1 girl died.
The space in the middle will have a certain angle so you will feel uncomfortable when u walk and stand on which it means that life is hard and that their families and friends suffered a lot but they are still holding on. I choose freedom sculpture by Zenos Frudakis because as he said “I wanted to create a sculpture almost anyone, regardless of their background, could look at and instantly recognize that it is about the idea of struggling to break free.
This sculpture is about the struggle for achievement of freedom through the creative process.” There will be a wall that it is divided to 9 parts Because 9 persons have passed away, every part have chain to put a lock or to write something beautiful.
