Recently reread an article Evelyne Pieiller 'Wall of Discord' published in 'Le Monde Diplomatique' of April 2012,
I remembered these photos taken in 2007.

To read this article, this wall was erected in 2000 in Paris on the Champ de March, and is the work of artist Clara Halter and architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte.
Written in forty-nine languages and alphabets eighteen repeats the word PEACE on its glass panels and thirty-two columns.

Originally installed for the celebrations of the new millennium, it is still in place, has undergone several degradation and its fate seems still unresolved to this day, its durability being not legally guaranteed.

It is hoped that such a magnificent symbol can be maintained.

Also read the Wikipedia (subject only in French) article and see the site of the Wall for Peace Association, and the Web-site of Wall of Peace
