“VisionPlus Vienna: transforming information” is a conference, organized by the International Institute for Information Design (IIID), to examine the role of the Isotype transformer 90 years on. The venue is dedicated to Marie Neurath. Much of her early work for the Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftsmuseum was pathbreaking. Siyblle Schlaich und Heike Nehl are invited to join the conference as speakers.
The beginning of June will see the 15th “Children and Youth Welfare Day”, with Berlin as this year’s host city. The event will take place in a dedicated area of 1,300 square metres, supported by the 12 districts of Berlin and sponsors. Moniteurs is in charge of the exhibition design, while xplicit has designed the exhibition graphics for over 50 participants. Individually designed, modular elements will be combined to create a cityscape, accompanied by experimental artwork. > To the project

The administration building, designed by Grüntuch Ernst Architects, has been awarded the Gold Certificate from the German Sustainable Building Council.
