Expo 2008 Zaragoza, Spain

Swiss Pavilion


On the basis of the competition idea submitted by the architects Fischer and Walker, iart conceived and planned the exhibition "Under the Lake" for the Swiss Pavilion at Expo Zaragoza 2008.

The exhibition's central feature was a huge sail onto which water constantly fell. The sail was hung in a curved way and due to projected images seemed to change its shape and function: It formed the three-dimensional shape of a lake floor or a pool. The projected video work was realised especially for this screen by the artist Max Philipp Schmid.

iart realised the entire exhibition in cooperation with tegoro solutions ag (since 2013 part of iart) and Nüssli Schweiz AG. The Internet site for the Swiss pavilion included a virtual exhibition tour designed by iart and, which was realised by Claudiabasel under iart's direction.
