ANDREAS BERGMANN: SCHWERTER ZU PFLUGSCHAREN – ZÄUNE ZUM SITZEN (SWORDS INTO PLOWSHARES- FENCES INTO BENCHES)

refugium ANDREAS BERGMANN- SCHWERTER ZU PFLUGSCHAREN

 

Back in time: the winner of the 1999 Deutsche Bank (German Bench/Bank) competition, organised by the Homonymous bank, and playing on the multiple meanings of the German word ‘Bank’. Created by the Berlin-based designer Andreas Bergmann at a time when the wall had been replaced by building site fences as the city’s most conspicuous architectural element.
