In 2009 the University of Design in Schwäbisch Gmünd was celebrating the 100th anniversary of its heritage protected art nouveau building – designed by architect Martin Elsässer. From December 7th to 10th the building was illuminated with an projection that was celebrating the Design Universitys roots and its current status as one of the most prestigious design universities in Germany. At the same time the projection was reflecting political debates which had a crucial impact on the future of the university.
A big thank you to the collaborators: City of Schwäbisch Gmünd, HB Laserkomponenten GmbH, Livingston Electronic Services GmbH, Mixtown Veranstaltungstechnik, and the University of Technology Stuttgart.
