The Gardens of the World in Marzahn Recreational Park in Berlin is home to various gardens that show off the world's different cultures. This particular installation is the Christian Garden but really, it's the Garden of Typography. The walls are, well, literally made with type.

The letters combine into passages of both Old and New Testament (hence the Christian Garden) and places the focus that Christianity is a religion of books and writing. The pieces are actually gold painted aluminum and the font was designed by Alexander Branczyk specifically for this walkway. [FontBlog.de via An Architecture]
