This book presents the world?s most spectacular designs for commercial and cultural installations, spanning from smaller trade stands, large museum-like exhibition areas and temporary presentations in cultural centers, to design showrooms and spaces for product promotion. Projects such as trade fairs, art exhibitions, event locations or showrooms might be different in purpose but they all have one thing in common: they share a temporary character, they are bound to limitation of budget and space, and they are an ideal source of architectural innovation, since only a real eye-catcher can satisfy the media.
Generally, exhibition design is characterized by it high demand on functionality, on safety and on the more practical aspects such as quick and easy assembly and disassembly for a small work force. This, nevertheless, does not rule out the more aesthetic aspects: there is still plenty of room in exhibition design to play with shape, material, fitting and coloration.
