In the financial distrct of St. Gallen, Switzerland there is now carpeting. It’s an art installation named Stadtlounge that has covered the entire district in red broadloom – including cars!
The winning “Stadtlounge” or “city lounge” proposal, by artist Pipilotti Rist and the Carlos Martinez architectural firm, features a bright red surfacing that appears to have swept in like the tide, covering everything in its path. At night, the streets are illuminated by blimp-shaped objects that hang from cables strung between the district’s modern office buildings.
When I grow up I want to be astronaut, from Switzerland!
