I recently visited the Peace Palace in The Hague. The structure and layout of the building is a testament to its unique purpose. Andrew Carnegie contributed the funds to build the palace under two conditions: that it contain the largest international law library in the world, and that each member country contribute gifts to decorate the palace. As you walk through the halls of this massive building, one is able to observe the range of artistic contribution from Japanese wall carpets to Byzantine mosaics to statues of important peace campaigners from around the world.
