Kahla
INTERVENTION

 

 

The Thuringian porcelain factory Kahla is called after the small town beside the river Saale, where it is located. The townscape is characterized by the factory with its three chimneys. They are arranged in a row, made of red brick and 70 meters high.

Coming from Jena on the main road you drive for a long time towards the three chimneys seeing them from the left side. They seem to be slowly merging. The road makes a slight bend to the left  and suddenly you see them from the other side.

The moment of the overlay, in which only the first chimney isseen, is blocked by bushes on the roadside.

To change this situation, we engaged a local horticulturist to cut a window into the bushes.

Concept and realization: Dominik Lutz and Christoph Faulhaber, 2000
