I was surprised to find the technical term for boarding around building sites is hoarding: Construction Hoarding, or A-Class Hoarding, is the use of boards, fences or other standing structures to signal and secure the boundary of a construction site.
And every now and again these public spaces are used creatively. Like in Wiesbaden. A museum made the bare surfaces into a exhibition called “Abstraktion im Quadrat”. It was a co-operation between artists and various schools.
The photos were taken on the run – I would have liked to have more leisure instead of taking rushed pictures.
