Expo.02 – Yverdon-Les-Bains / West 8

3056 3057

“Enormous artificial dunes, six meters in height, are the main organising elements of the design. Wandering between or over these hills, the visitors are confronted with masses of flowers in strong colours and psychedelic patterns, also producing (dis) orientating fragrances. Various facilities are accommodated in rough timber structures, integrated in the dunes. These structures act as ‘artificial body-parts’ that complete the form of each dune. Each pavilion roof is covered with semi-transparent stamoid, bubble-jet printed with a graphic flower-pattern, reflecting the biological species on the dune itself.  An artificial, floating cloud forms an ‘objet du desir’ in the lake of Neuchâtel, accessible only by vanishing into its white foggy substance.”
