Typoase / Installation Public Space


The installation "Typoase" is a typographic furniture for city spaces, in this case for "Piazza della Tribunale" in Bolzano. Big letters form the word "time". The integrated banks invite you to take your time.

Typoase works on to different levels. Standing in front of it, you can barely read the letters. Its not until you climb the stairs of the court building, that you get the message. Like in life, things get clear seen from a distance.

And this way the recreated place becomes a space to gather and communicate. The Letters "Time" are formed by gabions with wooden banks as seats and topped with turf lawn.
