Isn’t this a fun thing? Heike Mutter and Urlich Genthe‘s walkable roller coaster is nothing more than perfection in a modern landscape folly and a a leisurely walkable delight.
I have been studying this thing for at least 20 minutes now…I am trying to understand that loop-do-loop — what do you think? Can you walk it? Is it an Escher-esque mind-messer? Or is it simply the point where you must turn around and go the other way? (More images here — study for yourself and let me know what you think — or maybe you have walked it….was it as cool as it looks?)
I’m also enjoying the swirling sparkler-like qualities that they LED lights lend once the sun has gone down. Between this (in Dalsburg, Germany) and the other industrial park we chatted about a couple weeks ago I’m thinking that a landscape themed trip down the Rhine would have some fantastic stops along the way.
