The concept connects the real space with the digital one in a conclusive and creative way using the colour white as a common thread and an overall element. “White Cube” and Thomas Mann’s “Munich was shining” are the themes.

In cooperation with Wangler & Abele.

The fourth dimension is time. The change of the seasons shows the landscape in different appearances and differs landscaping from the classic architecture. By creating puplic space topics relevant to society have to be discoursed. Actuality cause the working process. Reason for choosing a monotype font that reflects the spoken word in a very clear, linear and pure articulated way. Full-sized photographys of key projects on the printed products complete the coporate identity. In cooperation with Wangler & Abele.
An exhibition of Wangler & Abele. Design concepts as well as realisation of key projects are shown. Transparent information sheets to cut off with short discription of the exposed projects reflecting the way of working. Despite the digital age sketch tracing paper is still an essential tool in the design process of Wangler & Abele.

The principle of the kit is both a concept and a guiding idea during the creation of an orientation system for the botanical garden Zurich. A garden is a dynamic living space. The aim was to create a flexible system, easy to produce on location. Specifications are a type which is optimized for the engraving machine and guidelines for signs as sizes, grid, type and colour. A data bank simplifies the production process. In cooperation with Barbara Hoffmann, Florian Jakober, Eduardo Iborra Wicksteed, Michael Zehnder, Zurich University of the Arts.
