    This abstract concept reminding of a dynamic dune is a public refreshment-system which is inspired by the allegory to connect the subjects water and desert, humidity and aridity with each other. The attraction is situated in inner cities of regions with a warm climate. People can refresh themselves on hot and dry days in order to distract oneself from everyday life for a short time. They can use it by entering the knee-deep pool filled with fresh and cool water. The water is conveyed up to the surface through the fissure, integrated along the top of the sculpture. It flows along the inclined surface - downwards into the pool. People are suggested to touch the surface of the sculpture. The contrast of desert and water is emphasized by the arrangement and shapes of the sculpture, pool and plateau. They align to the origin of its design: a reduced, dynamic and also geometrically explainable shape of a natural phenomenon. Structure and materialities are matched for southern cities. Read Less
