ÜBERDACHT UNTERMAUERT
as part of the vision.Stadt exhibition,
Mohrmannhalle, Oldenburg

The open roof timbers of the Mohrmannhall in Oldenburg becomes a synonym for town planning and planning processes, the themes of the vision.Stadt exhibition. Load–bearing and aesthetic functions complement each other logically within its structure. These attributes are drawn together to form a context by the overall projection on to the supports and braces in the roof timbers.

Shot and counter–shot in the installation convey the dialectical approach of the city vision visually by the use of the polar terms ÜBERDACHT UNTERMAUERT (ROOFED OVER, UNDERPINNED), and by changes of viewpoint.

On the outer wall of the Mohrmannhall is a maze texture projected as basic structure of any communication and planning. Upon entering the place the maze lightens itself and the words of the concept field
FIND CITY SEARCH CITY
are readable.
