Exhibition Design as a Space of Opportunity

The exhibition architecture designed by J. MAYER H. explores the subject of presenting architecture in a novel manner. The mobile and changeable exhibition sculptures engage with each other in a fascinating dialogue. At the same time, the sculptures integrate presentations of various works by select architects and engineers. Since the order in which the sculptures are set up within the exhibition area available is deliberately left open, the exhibitors are given a « space for opportunity » allowing for flexible adaptation to unforeseen demands on utilization or changing locations. The exhibition’s changeability opens up intriguing constellations. It invites the visitor to think over the conventions of customary presentation of architecture in a static context and to explore new ways of presenting an exhibition.

About the Project – Baukultur Made in Germany 

« Baukultur Made in Germany » – this is the motto under which the German Federal Chamber of Architects (BAK – Bundesarchitektenkammer) presents the German contribution to the 9th São Paulo International Architecture Biennial. Twenty projects, both from within Germany and abroad, realized by German architects and engineers were selected to demonstrate the high quality of German planning with regards to building culture, urban development and, last but not least, engineering and technology.
