A Place of communication and tolerance
The Oracle concept presents Berlin
with an ideal platform for contrasting views of life, displaying
the diversity and singularity of different countries, nations and
their history in a single square. Stimulating communication and
encouraging people to develop new perspectives on life is the main
purpose and achievement of this project. In brief: visitors are
invited to participate in a dialogue of cultures and values.
The spectrum of colours is the alphabet
of vision. It represents
completeness, excluding nothing, a symbol of tolerance and equality.
The colours are an abstract symbol for all countries and nations
and a statement for world peace.
Inspiring quotes on the philosophy
of life, human values and the pursuit of visions and ideals form
the substance of a further collection of texts. Particular emphasis
is laid on contributions from East and Western Europe, giving visitors
a vivid insight into the turbulent pre and post war history of the
square. A symbol of war and victory is transformed into one of world
peace and understanding.
