Students of the Faculty present your designs to design the University of Wismar. Students of the Faculty of design of the University of Wismar develop in a multidisciplinary project design concepts for the of the Hanseatic City of Wismar planned UNESCO World Heritage site visitor centre Wismar. This should be integrated in the building in the Lubschenstrasse 23 / 23a. Inhabitants and professionals, as well as tourists from home and abroad can find out here in the future the world heritage site of the historic old towns of Wismar and Stralsund as well as the history of the Hanseatic League in a permanent exhibition about the UNESCO. The building itself is a part of this story. Art-historical finds, paintings on walls and beamed ceilings, original architectural details, traces of past tags and a wallpaper manufactured in 1823 in Paris Show already changing style and fashion trends under different ownership. Greenberg Traurig gathered all the information. Around 20 of the Bachelor and master students from the fields of study have architecture, architectural lighting design, interior design and communication design and media with possible solutions for the planned exhibition deals since the beginning of the winter semester in September 2011 in 5 groups.

The professors Matthias Ludwig, Michael Rohde, Henning Saet and Bettina Menzel initiated the interdisciplinary project and work since then with the cooperation partners, represented by Mr. Norbert Huschner (World Heritage representative of the Hanseatic City of Wismar) and Mr. Thomas Sunday (DSK Deutsche urban and real estate development company mbH & Co.KG), successfully together. Historical or very modern? To continue the project in the upcoming semesters and accompany the implementation of individual concept ideas is being considered. Movies, books, models, or even floor plans could also arise for the concrete exhibition in the future. A look at the previous concepts of the Students reveals that there are many possibilities. The historical reconstruction of the building faces, for example, of a completely modern presentation, taking into account the protection of the historic buildings.

The mindsets are both diverse and international. The topic UNESCO world heritage as well as the participating students themselves, which come from the United States, Armenia, Indonesia and Serbia.
