These campaigns commemorate the event through “challenging essay contests, fall of the wall celebrations, speaker events, German movie screenings and other unique events,” according to the German Missions in the United States website.

The solo cups that form the installations are made of a plastic that is not recyclable in Syracuse.

Structures built out of red solo cups appeared in different forms around campus this week, calling awareness to the party culture at Syracuse University and related issues of sustainability.

The solo cup installations are part of the Red Cup Project, a group project for the architecture class ARC 500: Politics of Public Space. The class is taught by associate professor Lori Brown. Three SU architecture students and one student from State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry run the project.

School of Architecture graduate students travel to Denmark on an alumnus's dime to learn about infrastructure and society.

From the outside, the concrete Bagsværd Church looks like an industrial factory made from a series of stacked rectangles. A few steps closer into the courtyard, views of the clouds entice you, and it feels warm and bright. Inside, the curved concrete roof modulates light and mimics the form of the clouds. You’d barely know that one wall separates this serene sanctuary from a busy road and another bustling day in Copenhagen.
