Rhine-Main Summer of Architecture 2011

26 I 08 - 04 I 09 I 2011


During the Rhine-Main Architektursommer (Summer of Architecture) in 2011, Christ.Christ. set up an adapted freight container on the market square in Wiesbaden. The container served as an exhibition room, in which the office presented its projects to visitors.

The aim was to create a dialogue between the interested public and the architects through direct contact. In contrast to a classic exhibition, which has to be purposefully visited, people came across the exhibition container by simply sauntering through the town centre.

The container’s old exterior paintwork was removed through sandblasting. As a result, the appearance of the container changed over the course of the two-week exhibition as the trapezoid sheet metal began to rust. The green roof landscape was utilised for events and as a communications zone.

Idea, concept and organisation: Christ.Christ. associated architects in conjunction with WAZ – Wiesbadener Architekturzentrum e.V.
