The entry “wins” by the first look, the image of theses giant water lillies next to the statue of liberty animates the imagination and somehow even touches you emotionally – even befor you take a closer look to find out what this is all about. This shows how the project stands out of all the other entries – and that the presentation is perfect. Once you start getting further into the proposal, this first image is enriched by the idea to make the units movable, controlled by tweets, showing “the state of the world” in terms of human rights and social justice. Thus an ever changing (at least if we won´t reach a point of worldwide freedom..well, hope never dies..) architectural landscape comes into beeing that enriches the statue ( the idea / the notice of the one upright flame of libertys torch and the multiple moving water droplets is a very poetic one). While these remarks are only concerned with the outside and long-distance view, the section and the close-up renderings show that the spaces between, below, above and even in the “units” (the authors speak of “water droplets”) would be as interesting and inspiring. The project works as a whole: Presentation, concept and the right amount of detail (= only the essential information; to much can weaken) evoke a strong, beautiful image without showing any weakness.
