Collage City

Best Implemented Project of Temporary or Permanent Museum Exposition

About the project
How do we create a place that enables forty individual artists to present their work in the most ideal way possible and at the same time inspire and excite thousands of visitors? We propose to build a city, inspired by four visionary urban plans from the past, which together form our pitch for Unfair20: Collage City. An exhibition design that is characterized by four unique areas, each with its own character: coulisses, light-air-space, square and superstructure. Well-positioned and carefully designed openings in the walls allow infinitely different routes and offer beautiful views through all four areas. A bridge with a view over the central square acts as a landmark and forms the literal highlight of the design.
