In DETAIL: Exhibitions and Displays

DETAIL Magazine is a very good reference to understand the details of contemporary buildings, grouped by materiality/program.

In DETAIL offers a compilation of works grouped under a given theme, in book format. In this case, Exhibitions and Displays covers a wide selection of projects (with highly detailed drawings, as usual in DETAIL) ranging from museums to a supermarket, along with articles on branding, sustainability on temporary projects, and more.

The terms “exhibitions” and “displays” imply an offensive and extrovert attitude. This attitude should, of course, be inherent in exhibition and museum concepts, trade fair stands and shops. The term “exhibitions” focuses on the concept of staging content in an interior space. In contrast, “displays” represents the concept of “provision, offering”. Here, for everything from a fashion boutique to a trade fair appearance, the design of which essentially conveys its corporate identity, the commercial side places a considerable role.

Both positions demand the attention of the visitor, both involve the transfer of information to a wide public audience, both place emphasis on staging and require suitable architectural concepts for this. These days, along with the challenging task of an exhibition concept, the planner frequently has to face additional full-service requirements from the briefing and CI design up to and including implementation itself. How this is achieved is explained in short articles by authors from the individual fields. This valuable professional information, backed up with comprehensive project examples, details the way in which plans are successfully put into practice.

This issue of “In Detail” focuses on interior design, thereby representing an enriching supplement to the previous title “Interior Surfaces and Materials”.
