Multicoloured instead of uniform grey: choose the best junction box 2017!
Around 3000 artworks, in the form of creatively designed electricity distribution boxes, can now be found across the city.
Around 3000 artworks, in the form of creatively designed electricity distribution boxes, can now be found across the city. Approximately 500 of these were sprayed and spruced up this year alone, as part of the "junction box styling" project. Stromnetz Berlin GmbH carried out the project with the associations meredo e.V. and Helliwood media & education im fjs e.V. for the fifth time. It gives young Berlin residents the chance to creatively redesign junction boxes in their district and near their schools.
The young participants were supported and taught by experienced street artists. They familiarise themselves with a variety of design techniques and put these into practice. This year, 40 schools with a total of around 1000 pupils took part in the junction box styling project.
To acknowledge this commitment, the project is rounded off with the "most creative junction box 2017" competition. Almost 30 school classes entered their results.
That's where the Berliners come in: photos of all the boxes taking part in the competition are displayed in the picture gallery on Stromnetz Berlin's website. Alongside an official jury, all Berlin residents can choose their personal favourite until 12 November 2017.
On 29 November 2017 the winners will be announced.
