Blaues Band

BUGA Erfurt 2021 -  Opening planned for April 23rd


With the order to plan and realize the Blue Ribbon (Blaues Band), we had the opportunity to work on a unique, textile landscape sculpture. In the winning design by the Heuschneider landscape architects, the Blue Ribbon was intended to create a textile context on the Petersberg site. The reference to this can be found in the historical culture of dyeing in Erfurt. At that time, a special blue color for dyeing textiles was obtained from the local woad plant (Isatis tinctoria).


The Blue Ribbon is a sculpture stretched from 50 blue ropes, which stretches over a length of 118 m through the park landscape. A moving band is created by masts and guyed low points, which always opens up new perspectives for the viewer.
