The concept of clinker bricks as a basic construction material permeates BWM’s design for “GEBAUT: 2005–2010”, the anniversary exhibition organised by the Vienna Municipal Department for Architecture and Urban Design (MA 19). BWM abstracted the theme of construction and transferred it into the space by inserting a brick wall in front of the room’s walls. Images arranged in chapters and adhered directly to the bricks create a structured tour along the curvature of the brick wall.

The interplay between the short texts and the varying height of the display walls, which adds rhythm, creates an impression of unexpected lightness.
