Berlin Underground Station Hermannstrasse

Client: Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG)

„Endangered Jungle“ as a concept of redesigned Berlin Underground station „Hermanstrasse“ is dedicated to the threatened habitat of the tropical rainforests. The large scaled illustrations are continuously covering 36 tiled columns and walls of the platform, showing a sequence of distinct geographical zones of tropical rainforests around the globe, together with their smaller or larger inhabitants. During changing trains or the time spent waiting on the platform, passengers are invited to meet 85 different endangered species shown in more than 150 single portraits – such as parrots, birds of paradise, monkeys and apes, antelopes or big cats – an occasion to take a pause and go for an expedition in the urban jungle.
