Carpeted Financial District in Switzerland

Thanks Cory!

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!
