The World Peace Gate’s architectural highlights are:
• Entrance plaza called the ‘Field of Invitation’: Visually this part of the structure forms a central axis, and its patterned flooring is contiguous with the main structure.
• World Peace Gate, or the ‘Field of Reception’: Access to the gate is for pedestrians coming from the main entrance; columned masks line an area for strolling.
• Commemorative plaza or the ‘Field of Festival’: A performance area with a flooring pattern inspired by wall paintings in an ancient royal tomb.
• Surrounding of posts of flags of all nations, or the ‘Field of Ascension’: This area is designed to emphasize the atmosphere of friendship and cooperation among all nations.
