The idea for the unusual project of creating a public “city lounge” originated with architect Carlos Martinez and multimedia artist Pipilotti Rist. Their piece of art transforms the “Bleicheli District” into a 24-hour accessible leisure, relaxation and business oasis. It invites you to linger and offers a perfect setting for meeting people. A red “lounge” carpet covers the ground and glowing lamps are suspended overhead, bathing the neighbourhood in diverse, subtly changing lighting moods. Location: in the centre of St. Gallen, approx. 5 minutes on foot from the St. Gallen Main Station in the direction of the pedestrian zone.
