Folding for Peace by Anouk Vogel

"An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. Inspired by this popular belief, the garden Folding For Peace is the physical remain of a wish for world peace. All the plants that compose the garden are folded out of white paper."

Located in Nagasaki, Japan, the installation by landscape architect Anouk Vogel responds to this belief and is composed of white paper flowers. It is such a simple concept but truly beautiful.
