A construction project generally means a lot of noise, dirt, and disruption, and the site hoarding is often a means of shielding the site from view and keeping people away. NürnbergMesse saw an opportunity here to engage in dialogue with visitors and local residents. Their project was helped along by a large number of Nuremberg school classes that participated in the painting competition “Nuremberg – my city.” To establish a meaningful connection to the construction site for the new Hall 3C at NürnbergMesse, it was a prerequisite that the children involved always had to be from a year 3c primary school class.
As a result, the hoarding has now been transformed into a 300 meter-long colourful mosaic of children’s paintings, information boards and peep-holes that allow the public of glimpse of the building site. Go take a look and have some fun!
