Appreciation towards INNOCAD for providing the following description:


The spatial design of the visitor center “Naturpark Südsteiermark” in Southern Styria, Austria and a nature conservation exhibition translates the region’s landscape into an abstracted, customized installation for the historic building, a former estate.

The reduced landscape installation consciously contrasts the historic estate and constitutes a stage and frame for the new visitor center. Existing elements of the historic building are used for zoning the three areas – information, delicacies, and wine store, while simultaneously integrating into the abstract, generous spatial installation. The 15-meter-long table, on which the products of the region are presented, forms the link to the 15 nature park communities featured in the exhibition. The simple and raw materials used are a deliberate contrast to the refined region’s products, linking together the building´s former use and the manufacturing sites of the presented goods.

The interior landscape, structured along the exhibition’s topics, acts simultaneously as display for objects, descriptions, graphics, and multimedia projection and forms the emotional framework as an abstract image of the various biospheres of the nature park. The visitors are guided through the various landscapes and experiences according to the different scales and references of the architecture, which are directly proportional to one another.

The exhibition architecture, as a spatial intervention, utilizes the existing space and zones it accordingly. On the ground floor, a “seating landscape” and the theme “Future of the Nature Park” conclude the exhibition tour and lead visitors back to the information center.
