Brickcomb

The mineral composition and color of the wall structures for the Lohsepark are derived from the construction material traditionally used in the city of Habmurg, the clinker brick. The brick and stone structures of the city and its harbour areas are contrasted with a living construct of intervals. The colour scheme is taken from the variety of burnt clay. Depending on the combination of the different sides of the bricks, the geometry of the bricks forms a variety of large polygonal and hexagonal openings. Like a reversible figure, the structure of the wall or the individual openings in it seem to alter, depending on the focus of  the viewer.
