Tetraeder Bottrop

Thursday, 26th October 2006 by

To follow-up from the Copper Mining earlier in the week, we head over to the German coal mining town of Bottrop, where there's lots of industrial stuff going on.

But if you're more of an art person, on a nearby disused slag heap we find 'Tetraeder Bottrop', a giant big Tetrahedron artwork-thingy by Wolfgang Christ. 230 tonnes of steel went to make what is basically large viewing platform, 60m tall on a 90m heap.
