Remstal Garden Show 2019 - 16 Stations

Stations along a route are places of pause and reflection. They endow the path with internal coherence and a theme. The sixteen stations of the Remstal Garden Show span the arc of the Rems river, from its source to its mouth. The array of architectural structures by the participating studios characterises the sites where and for which the works were built; they differ from one another in design and atmosphere. Yet they are also linked to one another like pearls on a necklace. Although architecture ordinarily responds to requirements imposed for a precise function, these are of secondary importance here. Of primary importance is instead the search for a dialogue with the culture that distinguishes this landscape. The specificity of a place immediately catches the attention of visitors; they discern and understand without any instructions for use. Why? Because all the stations posses a narrative power that is an essential trait of any outstanding architecture.
