Graphic Departure

At Vienna International Airport, Ruedi Baur’s transparent wayfinding system marries minimalist design and poetic touches. In some ways, airports are quintessential non-places. With their long corridors, labyrinthine layouts, and cacophonous soundtrack of arrivals/departures and passengers speaking multiple languages, it’s easy to forget exactly where you are.

Puzzle Facade was part of Javier Lloret’s thesis project in the Interface Culture master’s program at the Universität für Künstlerische und Industrielle Gestaltung in Linz, Austria. Puzzle Façade brings the experience of solving a Rubik’s cube to the urban space. It transforms the façade of the Ars Electronica center in Linz into a giant Rubik’s cube, inviting passersby to engage with the interactive experience.
