WHY DO YOU LIKE THIS PROJECT?
The deep and thorough research we conducted into Südraum meant that the project was relevant to and was well received by the local population and official bodies. The aesthetic decisions we made on the project were also informed by the research we had carried out. The implementation of the project was based on a multidisciplinary communication design approach, and drew on other areas of expertise as well (see Collaborators).
Very positive feedback and reactions, especially in the local press.
