a floppy from duisburg.
i like the style of this graffito a lot – accurate yet still very powerful strokes.
the north rhine westphalia state archive in duisburg’s inner harbour.
this is an ex-warehouse from the 1930s that got its dominant tower in 2014 by austrian architects ortner&ortner. the complete archive will be able to hold about 150 km of shelving.
it might be debatable whether the rather cold appearance of the building is well suited for a public institution (i doubt that) but i think it looks like a really cool fortress :)
the title of this post is probably a slightly more poetic rendering than the literal translation of this vintage german verboten-sign.
or was it rusty moss? this is from the landschaftspark nord in duisburg.
this is a detail of the sculpture tiger&turtle – magic mountain by heike mutter and ulrich genth in duisburg. i liked the backdrop a lot.
