Woodpassage – from tree to house
Playing a Graphical Game with Perception for Schendlingen School
In the course of the general refurbishment of the Sutterlüty City-Park complex in Dornbirn the architects decided to give the unnecessarily busy facade a glass cladding that is stretched like a translucent skin across the building. The graphic structure seems dynamic and yet restrained, like a skim coat of casein paint energetically applied using broad brush-strokes. For cost reasons the large screen prints were made from four repeated print forms. The different degrees of transparency of the printed glass produce a relationship with daylight that changes all the time. This gives the façade a constantly shimmering visual quality.
