Floating Artwork

The end of 2012 in the field of architecture of the University of Lausitz (current BTU-Senftenberg) was an impromptu top "Floating Artwork" performed. It was a, or more pontoons to design floating object that responds to a wide effect on local, climatic, energetic, historical or political context and provoked. Here, the energy self-sufficiency should be considered.

Twelve projects were submitted and awarded three works. The first work of Michael Koppenhagen themed overall energy symbols and abstracted them. The work of Hao Cao foresaw a walk wavy Platform wooden profiles. The work of Meryem Altun dealt with a folded object of concrete.
