INTERIM USE OF A FORMER PARKING LOT BY ARTISTS
"Wiege von Starnberg" – launch of a new museum district
The art project "Wiege von Starnberg" (Cradle of Starnberg) was created on behalf of ehret+klein on the site at the intersection of Bahnhofstraße 1+3 and Bahnhofsplatz in Starnberg. This large, walkable, magenta-colored sculpture was created by the architectural artist Andreas Sarow – who is also known for "Die letzte Bastion" (The Last Bastion) in Starnberg, which was created in 2019. The walkable art project is intended to breathe new life into the site, which was most recently used as a temporary parking lot, in preparation for future redevelopment by ehret+klein. Starnberg's residents and tourists visiting the town can walk around sculpture and view the location from different perspectives.
More history than previously imagined
The name "Wiege von Starnberg" makes reference to the historical development of the site and the neighboring historic Lochmann property (built around 1520). It is the oldest house in Starnberg and is located on the museum grounds. Sarow places the property in a new context by temporarily interrupting traditional evolution involving construction, use and demolition.
Making two out of one
ehret+klein leased the unoccupied space in the low-rise building situated next to the "Wiege von Starnberg" to the Starnberg artist Paulo de Brito. The artist showcased his paintings, installations, video installations and sculptures there together with his wife Maria Rosina Lamp.
