In terms of its dimension and its design, the special exhibition hall at the documentation center Reichparteitagsgelände (Nazi Party Rally Grounds) appears very archaic and impressive. In the light of this special exhibition This atmosphere was to be preserved and scenographically enhanced in the light of this new exhibition “Das Gelände” (The Area). It documents the development and history of the Zeppelin field in Nuremberg, the debate around National Socialist architecture and future visions and plans for this area.
An expansive scaffolding construction was designed as a large structure which in itself is mighty enough to accompany the sturdy surroundings and produces an exciting setting for visitors to engage in the issues of the content. The structure seems delicate, almost see-through and embodies the (further) development and the formation of the area in contrast to permanence and finality. 19 time periods are sequentially displayed within the structure. The visitors can walk freely throughout the volume and can access the history of the Zeppelin field through separate chapters.
The concept displays a character of work in progress which does not raise a claim of being final or moralising. It rather invites the visitors to reflect on the process of idea finding, to join in the discussion and to take action.
