A Roller Coaster to walk in germany

4 years ago

Hello all, Can you imagine a roller coaster made for use on foot? The Germans Heike Mutter, Ulrich Genth not only thought of it as sculpture executed in Germany. The idea is really paradoxical. Roller Coasters are closely linked to high speeds, while walking is linked to lower speeds. It was this contrast that sugiu name: Tiger and Turtle, ie tiger and turtle. The site chosen for the deployment was the highest peak in the city of Duisburg. A strategic point really, as far you can view the curves as a sign resting on the hill, immediately bringing to mind the idea of dynamics and speed. As we approach the Tiger and Turtle, it is surprising to find that it is all made of stairs. The curves are paths full of staircases made to be traveled on foot. The visitor goes up, to be guided to the highest point, 45 meters high, where you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Ruhr. So a question is in the air, how to access the loop walk?
