where to, and where next? visitors to the new stuttgart region chamber of commerce and industry building are welcomed and guided to their destination by cheerful bands of colour. even if their route leads up a hidden staircase, visitors can tell at once where they are heading: from the two-storey foyer they can already see the colourful signs on the floor above. clear information is presented on multi-coloured wallpaper – the layered stripes blending in naturally with the architecture.

the place is characterised by a combination of odour, light, colour and lettering: bright colourful type, cast metal letters, names engraved in plaster, messages and paintings sprayed on surfaces capture the characteristic visual scent of a city. you don't perceive them as shapes but as information. you read the signs but fail to identify their messages. in the book »alphabet innsbruck« these hidden stories become visible. 180 pages eur 28,– isbn 978-3-87439-785-8
