The exhibition architecture designed by J. MAYER H. for "2014 Exhibition Design +" during "Beijing Design Week" explores the subject of presenting projects in a novel manner. The mobile and changeable exhibition sculptures engage one another in spatial dialogue by integrating presentations of various selected works by J. MAYER H.. The order in which the sculptures are set up within the exhibition are deliberately left open, the exhibitors are given a « space for opportunity » allowing for flexible adaptation to unforeseen demands on utilization or changing locations. The exhibition's changeability opens up intriguing constellations and invites the visitor to think over the conventions of customary presentation in a static context while exploring new ways of exhibition presentation.
J. MAYER H. und Partner focuses on works at the intersection of architecture, communication and new technology. Recent projects include the Court of Justice in Hasselt, Belgium, the residential building JOH3 and the VOLT brand shopping complex in Berlin, Germany as well as Metropol Parasol, the redevelopment of the Plaza de la Encarnacion in Sevilla, Spain; Lazika Pier Scuplture and several public and infrastructural projects in Georgia, for example an airport in Mestia, the border checkpoint in Sarpi and three rest stops along the highway in Gori and Locchini. From urban planning schemes and buildings to installation work and objects with new materials, the relationship between the human body, technology and nature form the background for a new production of space.
