“Art on buildings is like lipstick on a gorilla”, states British star architect Norman Foster in the book “Hybrid Zones”. In a two-day workshop we will explore the interaction between art and public space based on successful competitions. The workshop will provide a practical guide through public competitions and impart specific expertise on building regulations that need to be taken into account. Afterwards, your ideas are needed as we announce the fictitious competition “A MONUMENT FOR THE WHITE LAKE ACADEMY”. On the second day you will take on the role of the jury, at the end of which the first prize will be awarded with a lot of honor and a bottle of wine.
