A type wall for the Heilig-Geist Kirche Hamburg. The 23 m long freestanding installation, consisting of 900 metal carved letters, is located along the entrance path to the church. Despite its vast dimension, the wall structure remains diaphanous and fragile, enabling a playful interaction between surface, form, shadow and light.
Opening April 2017
The choice of typography corresponds to the transparent, minimal and geometric designs of the architectural office Konermann Siegmund Architekten BDA
