Landstrich

Posted on Categories artTags , , , , , ,

The green cycle path that runs through the heart of Thyssen-Krupp Steel’s large industrial site offers visitors a chance to pass through a monumental industrial landscape. Still in operation, 24 hours a day, here one is lost in time and adrift in history.

By creating curved slopes that elevate the asphalt cycle path to 2.3m at either end, Landstrich will at once frame and highlight this exceptional site in its entirety.

Confronting passers by on their journey, Landstrich invites visitors to have a look around and stay a little longer.
