School Schendlingen

Andrea Gassner

The orientation system for the newly built Schendlingen School in Bregenz the designers of Atelier Gassner have succeeded in a coup. The signage here is made up two words placed prominently on the glass partition walls to important areas and rooms. However, these words do not simply stand beside each other, they run over each other. In addition they are connected by the cross-hatching called for by the building regulations in full-height glass walls to prevent people from walking into them.

    Andrea Gassner, Austria (2015)

      It is above all the unerring way in which she devises and implements dizzyingly daring concepts of a kind that only few designers could convince their clients to use. In a single day Andrea Gassner magically installed a forest in the large columned hall of the Austrian Parliament. She spanned a huge banner below the hall’s light-flooded glass ceiling so that, looking from below, one saw treetops in their original size. “This is the first time one can really breathe in this building” said the President of the Austrian National Council upon entering the ‘forest’ in the hall. “Absolutely breath-taking”, is what I say as a colleague! Andrea can give order to chaos, she can create a cool warmth and can even harmonise nature with modernity. She does not loudly proclaim what she does but her work is heard and seen far beyond the borders of Austria.
