The Shower Tower In Germany

The London based studio rAndom International has created another experimental installation, Instant Structure for Schacht XII. It is installed at the Zollverein industrial complex in Land Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany. The structure features a rectangular frame where four huge curtains of water fall to the ground and cycles up to 30,000 liters of water each minute.

"It is a sensuous adventure: the sound of falling water, the humidity, the glimmering water walls in the sunlight. The sound of the resulting rain storm is intensely loud and a sensation of moisture lingers in the air," said the curators. "By bringing such large quantities of water into the controlled form of a building, rAndom International investigate if a structural purpose can wrought upon this otherwise chaotic element," they add.
