Germany’s Court Of Water



When Saalfeld architect & graduate of the Technical University of Dresden, Heike Bottcher drew out the design of the Kunsthof-Passage back in 1999, she apparently had in mind something funky & contemporary. The Kunsthof Dresden is a farm complex in the Outer Neustadt(Anton City). It consists of 5 small farms, each with its own unique name, colour & theme. And among one of them is probably one of music’s most creative ideas.

This is Germany’s Court Of Water, the water-themed façade of a collection of metal pipes & funnels. And windows. Yet these are no ordinary drainpipes. As you stand beside some farm chicken, try to pay attention to them when water is flowing down. With your ears. Because in the rain, these very funnels will actually create music.



Artists Annette Paul, Christoph Roßner and André Tempel, collaborated in the sculpting of this curious array of drainpipes after getting inspiration from the downspouts in St. Petersburg.


And just right opposite is another curious yellow façade of some wavy aluminum stickers on the wall.
