The Audi stand at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show was up to 39 m deep and 10 m wide. Its view was determined by free-form elements that seemed to float in space. These elements were connected to a modular steel grid at the rear of the stand, suspended high in the central area and cantilevered freely at the front.
Recycling for Geneva Motor Show
For the construction of the steel grid, elements from previous years’ stands could be partly reused – an important contribution to the ecological and economic life cycle balance of the stand.
