Exhibition Concept

During summer 2015 we collaborated with the architects büroberlin on a competion for a new museum project in Stuttgart – a memorial covering the history of Gestapo in the German state Baden-Württemberg. Our concept got ranked as Nr. 2 from the in total 9 participants. Wandel Lorch Architekten from Saarbrücken / Frankfurt am Main was the lucky winners which will realize the project. On a third place hg merz architekten landed. Other participants was Atalier Brückner, Büro Münzig, Hans-Dieter Schaal, Raumzeit Münster, Holzer Kobler Architekten and Kocmoc.net.

The task was to develop a exhibition concept for the former “Hotel Silber” – a building with a lot of history. Once a Hotel, head quarter for the german automobil club ADAC, police residence, location for crimes executed by the nazi led Gestapo institution and more.

Our concept included ideas that intended to be interesting for even younger visitors and school groups offering a lot of interactive tools (developed by schnellebuntebilder). We wanted to take one step back from the common “concrete look” memorials often has.

Swedish design & communication

Last week the exhibition “Mehr als Werbung – Schweden kommunizieren” opened at the Swedish Embassy in Berlin and we where there! The exhibition gave an insight about characteristic Swedish communication and which social and cultural influences that lies behind. Values defined Swedish is driven by equality, social responsibility and security. Internal is Swedish communication seen as humorous and creative, in the world well known for its digital excellence. Very interesting and entertaining. We are always happy about new exhibitions at the embassy.
