Waiting for the River / Observatorium it has been modified: 2013-01-26 di jessica zannori

In anticipation of the flooding of the Emscher River, the group Observatorium, built a 125 meter long structure, which functions as a bridge and at the same time as a village. “Waiting for the River” anticipates the renaturalization of the river in the next ten years. The spaces, which include a hostel, bathroom and outdoor dining areas, are available for 24-hour stays.

The group's intention was to involve visitors waiting for the “flood” event. As Geoff Manaugh writes: “It is the preparation of the landscape that becomes the spectacle”.
