The Trusteeship Council Chamber at United Nations Headquarters, designed by Finn Juhl, a Danish architect. In the delegates' area the walls are lined with strips of ash wood. Clear, contrasting colours used to decorate the air-conditioning units in the latticed ceiling are repeated in the carpet, which, like most of the furnishings in the room, was made in Denmark. On a pedestal near the windows stands the statute of a girl with arms upraised, reading towards a bird which hovers with outspread wings above her head. Carved out of teak wood by Henri Starcke, a Danish sculptor, it symbolizes Mankind and Hope. The Trusteeship Council Chamber has recently been modified for use as conference room, when necessary, with facilities for the participation of over a hundred members.
