Der gläserne Flügel
1991, Competition project
100 years after Otto Lilienthal's first gliding attempts, this over 5 m wide aerodynamic wing of sprayed floating glass and steel recalls the flair of a modern airport.
|The symbols from flight technology, such as turbines and propellers, are inscribed on the glass using stencils and "rotate" in dialog with police stars on the wing-shaped lit box, whose overall form is reminiscent of airplane landing flaps. The backlighting of the burned in painting creates a lively, spatial effect, thus accentuating the foyer of the police station at the Munich Airport.|
