Architecture of Conflict

Symbol of Division

This is an image of a significant piece of European architecture that was “dis-assembled”. This object and others like it can be found in the Newseum, a special museum dedicated to news and world events.

What was its purpose?

It was originally constructed in the mid 20th century. When and why was it “dis- assembled”?

What connections can you make to the previous object, the Mysterious Map?

Please post a comment below explaining your interpretation of this image. Next week I will reveal the answer.
