City and River

14-09-2012 “Opening CITY and RIVER – Münster on the River Aa”: exhibits connecting city and river

If you come to Münster, most of the attractions are within walking distance and can be seen without much difficulty – it’s only the river that is elusive: while the Aa figures in all the travel guides, it doesn’t actually seem to be there! Ask around, and it would appear that many tourists – and even many of the residents – are not convinced there is actually a river here at all. Is the Aa at Münster simply a myth?

Students at MSA | Münster School of Architecture are developing strategies to link river and city. Works with and without a thematic focus are curated and critiqued for the exhibit. The results go on display from 14 to 22 September, right next to the Aa, and accompanied by talks and workshops.
