Type of Work: Installation/UrbanFurniture

The local bus stop is a symbol of our youth: a meeting point that everybody can recall instantly, a place to sit close to your crush without admitting the excitement, a starting point of your first independent explorations. Maybe even a place to share your first cigarette, have your first flirt, or a first kiss! Let us give the Tillebierg the bus stop it deserves!
The construction could be a re-use of an old bus stop from the area. It will be powder-coated in signal iconic color to build a harsh visual contrast to the industrial building. The neon lighting can be build using a small solar panel.

Involvement of the public
Although planned as a permanent installation, during #Esch2022 local creatives can present there poster art in the display of the bus stop. Each month, another artist will get a chance to win the lottery!

Estimated time: Permanent
Estimated cost: 15000

We went to  places where adults would not pass by frequently but also not too far away from home. Tillebierg is one of those places where the adolescents meet for a forbidden cigarette, for a chat with like-minded and maybe a shy first kiss. A place on the periphery of Differdange and on the edge of the forest overlooking the town, located at a popular Sunday afternoon dog walking path. The spot...
