Ready. steady. go! is an installation by austrian architects Sandra Janser and Elisabeth Koller which is meant to provide a visual frame within the Jakomini district of Graz, Austria.
 
The intention of the project is to define the streets of jakoministraße and klosterwiesgasse, by marking them as a significant design area within the city.
 
The entrance to the jakomini district is clearly recognized by its north and south street endings, leaving them with a fresh inviting look for visitors to explore in the form of a running track.

The vibrant red installation with dividing track lines in gray, attracts attention to the changes in the quarter and is meant to make people stop and absorb the newly created atmosphere.
 
In total it measures 750 meters or 4600 square meters along the streets and pavement around the block. © Sandra Anser and Elisabeth Koller

Painted Scape

Product definition

The Painted Scape is a 2d architectural configuration, which is painted and/or coated to cover a significant area of an existing urban scape. This architectural configuration only intervenes – whether vertically or horizontally - on the surface of the space.
 
The interaction takes place in the interface between the user and the painted surfaces - vertical or horizontal - in which the users finds information, signals, functional areas and spaces.
 
The main objective of the painted scape is to call attention to the existing space, inject it with a unique identity, and highlight spatial functions with 2d aesthetics. Through these actions, this intervention makes a formerly unremarkable space an attraction for users and customers.
