This project, although seemingly quite simple, carries great potential to spread the message of tolerance. The choice to move the structure away from the center of the square is a strong one, and its location against the Kremlin Wall speaks powerfully. In the space created by this project, visitors are forced to confront the wall's darker past as they are educated about a tolerant future, thus creating a powerful dichotomy. Throughout the project, there are also a series of framed views from the structure, and even the subtle incline of the facade speaks metaphorically of inviting the public inside. The full transparency within the space, even down to the chosen stair details of transparent treads and risers, continues this idea of welcoming and acceptance. The choice of a white facade in direct contrast to the red brick wall behind is also one that speaks of peace, forgiveness, and hope.
As a temporary pavilion, the removal of this intervention could also be politically charged, as the lack of weathering behind this facade would leave a physical imprint on the wall. This would continue to remind visitors of the power of tolerance, thus embodying the enduring social and political footprint that this competition seeks.
Finally, the provocative ideas put forth in the concept and design of this project are followed elegantly with a presentation that clearly illustrates the desired juxtaposition between the tyranny of the wall and the pure hope for a tolerant future. This is most clearly illustrated with the elevation rendering, which illustrates a glowing white beacon triumphing over a totalitarian past.
