Persian in Weimar

WHAT?

Public spaces in a city are one of the most important parts of the environment. Streets are the simplest example of public spaces, where people get the first impression of city. Weimar as a cultural city has many places which are belonged to artists, authors, philosophers etc. I wanted to do a design work to declare these famous people to tourists and citizens. I decided to use street plates as a tourist information icon.

WHY?

During a search in the city plates, I faced with this text. At that moment its content and purpose was unclear for me. Then I found that it’s an explanation about Paul Schneider.
