Description
Entitled A Workshop for Peace, the documentary was produced by award-winning American filmmaker Peter Rosen, in association with the United Nations Department of Public Information, with support from Tele Images International, a French distribution company, and Japan’s national broadcaster, NHK.

The one-hour documentary was produced to commemorate the United Nations’ sixtieth anniversary and includes never-before-seen film of the original team of architects at work as they struggled to come up with an appropriate design for the Headquarters of the newly founded Organization that was committed to “saving future generations from the scourge of war”.

A Workshop for Peace documents how the 11-member international design team, each with a different background and prominent in his own right, rose to the challenge of overcoming their disagreements to design and eventually build a new symbol of peace and reconciliation.
