The exhibition to mark the 150th anniversary of the Kurpark von Bad Homburg v.d.H. [spa gardens of Bad Homburg] in the Gothic building focuses on the gardens and Lenné, their landscape architect. unit-design is developing an exhibition for two large areas that have extremely different atmospheres and histories. The visitor finds both the history of the park and the histories from around the park. Displayed on the ground floor is the chronological development of history and its key expansion. On the first floor, prominent visitors present on a conveyor belt collections of anecdotes and events and what they experienced during their stay at the spa. An orange tree, for example, stands for the gambling debts of an aristocrat, pulverised porcelain for the invention of the sand tennis court, Dostojewskis’ pocket watch for his literary activity in Bad Homburg, which also lead to the second part of the sentence “the park is magnificent, were it not for the confounded game of luck”.

A graphic design in selected colours and fonts is emerging for exhibition, placard and invitation card. For the placard, the park footprint was combined with a portrait of the landscape architect in the form of a collage: Mr Lenné appears to be sitting on a carpet on the footprint of his park.
