Competition for the Gelsenkirchen Pumping Station - 2nd Place


The design accepts the industrially formed landscape and relates directly to the engineering of the pump, synthesizing a new interpretation of industrial culture with an understanding of emerging hydroponics. The visible building pieces of the pump are not concealed or placed behind the scenes, instead, the arrangement of the building volumes and topography unit them creatively. Viewer attraction is created by unhindered views of the inner pump along with haptic and sensible examination of water as a theme.
