A type wall for the Heilig-Geist Kirche Hamburg, commissioned by the Architects Konermann + Siegmund. The 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 words, surface, form, shadow and light.
Opening April 2017

 

The design is an homage to the transparent, minimal and geometric designs of the church´s architect Otto Andersen (1924 – 1981).

The wall is made of natural rust-colored steel
