Richard Cobden Building

Richard Cobden Building

G. Stolyarov II
Description
Richard Cobden (1804-1865) was a remarkable English free-trade activist and political philosopher whose activities brought about the repeal of the protectionist Corn Laws in 1848. Cobden recognized that unfettered trade is a way of facilitating peace among nations – a lasting peace unattainable through any other means. When there is a free exchange of goods and ideas, people from different cultures begin to find reasons for friendship, toleration, and cooperation, rather than hostility, hatred, jingoism, and simplistic stereotypes. In promotion of a cosmopolitan, globalized society, I offer this building, whose front and two wings face a common raised central plaza, where individuals from all sides of the building can come to interact to mutual advantage. One can consider this central area to be analogous to the common ground that free trade and globalization establish among the peoples of the world.
