St. Gallen, Switzerland – Schreinergasse
Stadtlounge by Pipilotti Rist & Carlos Martinez (2005).
The Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist and the architect Carlos Martinez designed the city lounge as a public "living room" dipped in red, which is laid over the entire area like a carpet.
The floor covering of red-dyed plastic granules encases the floor area and the public furnishing such as seatings, sculptures and a fountains.
With an area of 4'600 m2, the lounge composes all the squares and rest areas of the area into an optically uniform whole.
