Fire Station, Vitra Campus, Charles-Eames-Straße 2, 79576 Weil am Rhein
Rêveries Urbaines features Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s first projects that concentrate on public spaces. Films and research models are arranged around twenty proposals that re-invent certain motifs for urban spaces: vines, torches, parasols, a fountain, a kiosk etc. The aim is to give a new sense of magic to the places where we walk, meet, and talk, by the use of lines, harmony and transparency. The installation is not only a collection of abstract ideas but also points to some of the ongoing projects the brothers are developing for several cities around the world. A brochure with detailed information on the scenarios presented will accompany the exhibition.
