    An exclusive look into the creative world of one of the great futurists of our time

    Opening Thursday, November 14, 2019, 7 pm

    Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Tron, Blade Runner or Aliens, Mission to Mars, and Elysium:
    Syd Mead created the futuristic and breath-taking worlds of a host of legendary science fiction films. He developed entire cities and mobility schemes featuring flying cars, autonomous vehicles, and spaceships.

    Syd Mead’s imagery is characterised by functionality and - usually - a positive outlook for the future. However, for the dystopian cult movie Blade Runner, Syd Mead designed a vision of a bold and apocalyptic city. Now, in November 2019, fiction is catching up with the present: the 1982 film is set in the Los Angeles of 2019.

    The idea to hold Germany’s first solo exhibition of works by Syd Mead was developed by Markus Penell of O&O Baukunst, and creates a wonderful opportunity to experience inspiring concepts of visionary urban development beyond just the usual architectural means. Curator Boris Hars-Tschachotin has succeeded in bringing together a very special selection of iconic drawings and gouaches by Syd Mead in the O&O Depot. A total of 30 original works focusing on urban spaces, including drawings made for Blade Runner, provide an insight into the creative world of this visionary artist. A brand new short documentary about his work, his sources of inspiration, and his career will also be available for viewing.

    Exhibition from November 15, 2019 to January 30, 2020
