    Previously known as Gasthaus Zur Sonne, this building served as inn and as movie theater. In 1974, it was converted to a cultural center and event venue with a focus on youth care, first run by the Catholic parish and later by the municipality, and renamed to Seezentrum Hard.

    The names painted in all-lowercase Motter Tektura (1974), a typeface by local designer Othmar Motter, were added sometime after 1975.

    The photos were kindly provided by Triest Verlag. Earlier this year, Triest has published the long-awaited Motter biography, edited and designed by Elias Riedmann and titled Othmar Motter – Meister der Extrabold (“Master of the Extrabold”).

    There seems to be a rule saying that Motter Tektura can’t be used without any customizations. By default, and unlike e or d, the u doesn’t have a gap.
