Water Tower - The Point
Lange Erlen, Basel
The production of drinking water is one of the major characteristics when describing the Lange Erlen.
Most of the processing steps are located in that region. However, disguised in their appearance and inaccessible for the public.
The intervention is therefore an element, which serves an extension of the existing production system and furthermore a point in the park that reflects its significance. In addition to that, the water tower works as a reservoir and as a public space at the same time.
