An awesome way to see an existing urban space in a new light. This 3D projection mapping was projected onto blank facade of the Kunsthalle [the Museum of Contemporary Art in Hamburg]. We as designers have the unique opportunity to reinvent almost anything, and in this case, it was simply done with light. The kind of urban installations, although temporary, draw people into a space, and inspire wonder and visual delight.
The Gates, an installation in Central Park by Christo and Jeanne-Claude was a temporary installation in place for 15 days in February of 2005. "The Gates were greeted with mixed reactions. Some people loved them for brightening the bleak winter landscape; others hated them, accusing them of defacing the landscape." This project is another great example of reimagining an existing space. Through simple interventions, an underused public space can take on a whole new feel and meaning.
