IBA Werkschau 2000-2010 - Land in Motion

Exhibtion – IBA Terraces - Lausitz

Land in Motion illustrates the visions and strategies for the Lausitz within the context of the former lignite mining region’s physical and social transformation over the course of time. The scope of the IBA’s vision is illustrated by the showcasing of 24 innovative projects. This region is home to the largest landscape construction site in Europe and is currently in a state of flux between its mining heritage and new visions for the future. The exhibition is situated on the IBA Terraces, adjacent to the post-industrial landscape of the former Meuro open-cast lignite mine. The diverse nature and unique features of the post-mining landscape provided the source of inspiration for the exhibition design language. Various themes are presented through architectural compositions and graphic illustrations, in conjunction with digital media installations.
