NUSSLI, a Swiss construction company, specializes in the implementation of temporary buildings and exhibitions. In this lecture, Martin Joos will share some of its international projects from the past 20 years.

The construction of temporary buildings is on the rise: Architects and interior designers are being asked to provide new experiences and spectacular installations to international clients.

The trend is to focus on marketing approaches with pop-up stores, outdoor installations, and temporary buildings outside of existing convention halls.

This marketing trend requires a different design approach featuring new concepts and surprising surfaces and shapes. This specifically involves the use of new materials and construction methods. Designers, contractors, and innovative specialist suppliers must work closely to develop solutions for the elaborated ideas and architectural visions.

The Interior Design Lecture Series is funded by CCA’s Interior Design Program and is supported by CCA’s student chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA).
