In anticipation of the flood of the River Emscher, the group Observatorium, It has built a long 125 meters, which functions as a bridge and at the same time as a village. "Waiting for the River" anticipates the re-naturalization of the river over the next decade. The spaces, which include a hostel, a bathroom and outdoor areas for dining, are available for stays of 24 hours.
The aim of the group was to engage visitors waiting for the event "flooding". As Geoff Manaugh writes: "And 'the preparation of the landscape that becomes the show."
