In front of the town hall a broad stepped venue, conveys between building and surroundings. The aspect of the spacial “flow” is to be underlined and thus it’s connecting character. For that purpose the phenomenon water is used as an ironic citation: the overused cliché and the strict pathetic side of the architecture mix each other in a strange symbiosis.
Water in different qualities, stream velocities, amounts and directions flows – in relation to the architecture – via a video projection over the real place. Organized in a cascading order the projected parts are joined to an entire historicized complex, which uses the link to the cultural use of the town hall to raise in an ironical manner questions about the presence and content of real spaces and cultural spaces nowadays.
