Emscherkunst.2013 - Temporary Visitor Center Emscher Village

by Markus Sebastian Braun, Chris van Uffelen (Ed.)

This temporary visitors’ center for Emscherkunst.2013 and the art camp for local art associations are made from re-used shipping containers, which house the different programs. By keeping the layout strictly on ground level and creating a path through a village, it is not only the space inside that matters, but also the various in-between spaces. The path spans from the visitors’ center to the art camp and also connects the Rhein-Herne canal to the Lindnerstrasse. The path itself is defined by the different qualities of the ground: pallets, pebbles, gardens and flower meadows.
