The use of projections onto buildings has in recent years gone way beyond everyday perceptions of what can be achieved. The following video was taken two years ago of a projection onto Kunsthalle in Hamburg, Northern Germany by Urban Screen. Kunsthalle is a leading art museum and considered by some to be one of the most important in Europe. It was built in 1863 -1869 by architects Georg Theodor Schirrmacher and Hermann von der Goede.

Concept: The conception of this project consistently derives from its underlying architecture – the theoretic conception and visual pattern of the Hamburg Kunsthalle. The Basic idea of narration was to dissolve and break through the strict architecture of O. M. Ungers “Galerie der Gegenwart”. Resultant permeabilty of the solid facade uncovers different interpretations of conception, geometry and aesthetics expressed through graphics and movement. A situation of reflexivity evolves – describing the constitution and spacious perception of this location by means of the building itself.
