This dissertation’s theme is based on merging the disciplines of event design and interior architecture to create a temporary installation. An event becomes the act of storytelling, bringing the abstract concept to concrete event design that can be enjoyed through contemplation or experience.

Just like Interior Architecture, event design involves the actualization of intangible ideas to realistic experiences from the brief of event objectives to concept generation.

An event becomes a spatial experience where we put on the air what we would like to say by integrating various factors, such as interior decoration, mechanical installation, audio equipment, performers, posters, invitations and advertising.

The proposed event is based on the idea of promoting an alternative mode of transport in Pretoria by introducing a hop-on-hop-off bicycle system. The concept for the event, which takes on the form of a temporary installation within the Pretoria Station, is to give the viewer a preview of Pretoria’s personality through the use of colour, light and graphics.

“Designing an event is always the creation of a spanking new horizon for you to contemplate and experience” (Victionary, 2007)
