The visitor walks through the ramp, descending – water level is higher on both sides – and the visitor remains absolutely dry. This intervention, designed by Westpol, allows people to meet in the middle of the lake without getting wet.
BUS:STOP Krumbach is a recently initiated project in the Bregenzerwald region of Austria that will pair seven well-known architecture offices from around the world with seven local architects and allow them to work together on the design of seven new bus shelters in the town of Krumbach. A true collaboration between tradition and innovation, national and international, BUS:STOP hopes to create a series of small and functional buildings with their own unique characters that tell not only the story of these architects, but also of this special region.
