spatial diversity / Lounge + learning environment

spatial diversity

The metaphor of ‘nature as an art gallery’ establishes the conceptual fundament for the lounge and learn environment ‘spatial diversity’. The folly is not only an interpretation of local landscape. By its frame-like design it provides a completely different perspective on nature and stages local landscapes. On the one hand it is a functional sculpture as it provides a lounge with several seatings. On the other hand it enables visitors to experience nature and learn about the forest, animals, flowers and fairy tales by the interactive learning panels to be found at both side frame of the folly.
