'Footprints'

The Michigan Daily - Monday, February 26, 1990 - Page 5
win allenberg

by Michael Sullivan
Daily Staff Writer
When the Berlin Wall divided the
city into East and West, East Ger-
man border guards raked the sand be-
fore the wall smooth everyday.
Footprints told the guards if some-
one had escaped.
When the School of Architec-
ture's annual Wallenberg Competi-
tion challenged students last month
to design an "urban intervention" re-
unifying divided Berlin, winner Eliz-
abeth Govan, a second year architec-
ture student, created "footprints,"
unobtrusively symbolizing the free-
dom to travel between the halves of
Berlin.
Govan designed a row of 29 inter-
locking wedge-shaped niches. The
wedges slope alternately from east to
west and west to east. Unlike the
Wall, her design barely interrupts its
surroundings, inviting pedestrians to
walk over it. Her design description

calls it "a celebration of the ability
of the individual to choose one's
path."
Govan said an article describing
the daily ritual of raking the sand on
the East side of the Wall inspired her
design.
The monument would not occupy
the site of the now disappearing
Wall. "I didn't want to memorialize
the Wall," Govan said. "The wall ex-
isted once. People didn't like it then.
I want to leave it up to the individ-
ual whether to think of the past or
the future."
The design will never be con-
structed, as it is intended only for the
competition.
Internationally renowned architect
Helmut Jahn flew in from Chicago
to be the chief judge of the competi-
tion. Jahn designed the State of Illi-
nois Building and O'Hare Airport's
new terminal.

"Jahn didn't want people rebuild-
ing walls," said Dean Almy, profes-
sor of architecture and director of the
competition. "The winning designs
were minimal but well-designed ges-
tures."
Thomas Hartman, architecture
professor and Wallenberg judge, said
the political statement of the designs
weighed heavily in the judging. "A
lot of solutions didn't deal with po-
litical context," Hartman said. "They
could have been anywhere, anytime.",
"The winning solutions were
clearly the best," Hartman said, not-
ing the judges did not have to com-
promise to reach a decision.
"Elizabeth's design was a poetic
idea that was irresistible," said
Robert Hubbell, architecture dean
and Wallenberg judge. "There were a
number of commendable schemes,
but Elizabeth's stood out as quite
remarkable."
Govan will use her $2,500 first-

place prize to enroll in a travel-study
program in architecture visiting
Germany, France and Holland.
The annual Wallenberg Competi-
tion for second-year architecture stu-
dents is "generally intended to focus
on some sort of social issue," Almy
said. Last year contestants designed
low-income housing complexes.
The competition is dedicated to
Raoul Wallenberg, a School of Ar-
chitecture alumnus, who directed a
Swedish effort to save Jews in Nazi-
occupied Hungary. Historians credit
Wallenberg with saving up to a hun-
dred thousand Jews from the concen-
tration camps. After the war, the
Soviet Union imprisoned him as a
U.S. spy. Though the Soviet Union
claims Wallenberg died in 1947,
members of his family think he
lived much longer, and may be alive
today.

Thousands rally for democracy in USSR

Rivers or roads?
Michigan wasn't the only state to get a little rain last week. In
Lafayette, Ind. Gary Foreman checked to see if his car would clear one of
the few flooded roads that remained open. Several other roads were
closed until the day got a little drier.

MOSCOW (AP) - From Si-
beria to the southern republic of Ge-
orgia, hundreds of thousands of So-
viets rallied for democracy in more
than 30 cities yesterday, despite offi-
cial warnings that the Soviet
Union's first nationwide protest
could explode in violence.
More than 100,000 people turned
out in Moscow, and smaller protests
occurred elsewhere. The official,
warnings, which were repeated fre-
quently last week in the state-run
media, kept the turnout low in some
cities and prevented some protests al-

together.
Riot police dragged away people
who tried to hold an unsanctioned
demonstration in Leningrad, but
there were no reports of major un-
rest.
In Moscow, the crowd grew
through the afternoon as initial ten-
sion gave way to a relaxed and good
natured atmosphere. One column of
marchers was led by a man with a
bullhorn who told police and by-
standers, "We represent no danger."
Savril Popov, a member of the
Congress of People's Deputies and

one of the organizers of the demon-
stration day, told masses gathered
under cloudy skies that the Commu-
nist Party and state apparatus had
engineered a campaign of fear not
seen since Stalin as an attempt to
thwart the outpouring of popular
sentiment.
The protests were planned after a
successful Feb. 14 pro-democracy
rally in Moscow in which about
200,000 people demanded the Com-
munist Party give up its monopoly
on power. The party did so shortly
afterward.

Thousands of uniformed police
and internal security troops guarded
the authorized march route along the
broad Garden Ring Road that circles
the city center. Sand-filled dump
trucks, water trucks and snowplows
sealed off all roads leading from the
Garden Ring Road into the down-
town area where the Kremlin and
Red Square were guarded by more
police posted about every 30 feet.
An independent newsletter issued
by Radio Moscow quoted unnamed
Interior Ministry officials as putting
the crowd at 300,000.
