« Moving Icon » is a mobile information pavilion, that is impleted in a series of historic places. The image of the popular housing icon made of four walls and a two-slope-roof has provided the basis for this convertible room, in which information about historic cities and their architecture is delivered by means of different media, either analogical or digital ones.
When the trailer is positioned and its motor-driven shell is hoisted, the usable volume of the pavilion doubles and the shell turns to be a vertical landmark in the urban landscape.
At night, by means of video projectors, the shell turns into a spot light device and a screen. The media instal¬lation is text-based and dynamic. It provides facts, figures and information about evolutions in the region. In¬side the pavilion, which is barrier-free accessible, the visitor can get more comprehensive information at the displays. The back wall is designed as an interactive pinboard on which the visitors are invited to write down their thoughts or can get and take away information. In contrast to the digital surface of the « media shell », the information exchange takes place user-friendly by means of traditional printed matter. The latter can be produced though printers or photocopiers and customized as needed.
