Recordings of human brain activity also known as electroencephalograms
(EEGs) were the main inspiration source for my proposal regarding
the design of the eastern glass front for the MEAG adminstration
building, which has a surface area of about 1300 sq.ft.
Applying different layers of EEGs to the glass surface results
in a close network of graphs. So the pane itself becomes a mirror
of thoughts and feelings. Each look at the outside world has to
pass through. It's at the same time an invitation to a journey into
one's inner self with all its facets.
The intermediate building as a link between two administration
buildings of the regional power supplier MEAG is been passed through
daily by hundreds of people. Their mental work and creative energy
for the enterprise are transformed into an abstract image on the
panes. The result is an unique experience sphere in an otherwise
hardly considered passage space.
A sinusoidal curve overlays this picture carpet, passes through
the entire glass facade and underlines with its clarity the function
of the space. Two different worlds meet and communicate with each
other both optically and mentally.
An uninterrupted stream of thoughts accompanies the visitor on
its course through the building.
About the client
The outline was developed in the context of an internal competition
on behalf of the Central German power supplier MEAG held at Burg
Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle in spring 2000.
