Concept - U-Bahnhof Georg-Brauchle-Ring, München


The Creation of a contemporary subway station that invokes the past history of the development of the subway system in Munich (e.g. the late Sixties) and a consciousness of the conection between art, industrial design, and architecture. The Eastern and Western subway station walls will be tiled with either a ready-made tile matching the colour specification of the artist or a specially fabricated tile creating an „industrial wall painting" similar to other recent projects by the Artist. The tiles will come in six colours, loosely based on the Seventies Olympic colours, due the stations proximily to Olympic park and the importance of 1972 for the area – in terms of design – and the development of the subway system which was developed for precisely for transporting people through the city, whether it be to work or to an „event".
The design will be based on a series of six interclocking colours. The design or pattern itself, due to is cropping, will provide a endless scource of contemplation to the traveller as is pattern is layered, complicated, and unending – yet simultaneously simple on the eye. The colours and over all feeling of the Georg-Brauchle-Ring station will be futuristic and industrial – matching the needs of the area, the surrounding architecture, and the history of the region, and the subway system itself.
