25 Jahre Mauerfall Display Proposal
Mauerfall Proposal

For the 25 Jahre Mauerfall, the production team asked spatial designer Christiaan Bakker and me to pitch an alternative proposal, to the one proposed by their original architect, for a display that would run alongside the 15km long light installation that followed the same track as the former Berlin Wall. On the site specific displays they would print stories and images from the Berlin wall.

We were asked specifically to work with the temporary nature of the exhibition; in our design, budget, and production. Starting from the modular principle of a street blockade, we designed a dynamic system that could adapt to the ±150 individual sites. In addition to the rentable metal legs, we would print 2 × 1m wooden panels with two different layouts. The graphic design of the panels had already been made, and our task was to create a dynamic modular system within the constraints of the design. After printing, the wooden panel could be cut up and assembled in multiple ways. In this manner, the display could be adjusted to any location.
