  • This structure dates back to a 1995 competition won by the artist Fridolin Welte. In the meadow between the Kneipp treading pool and the Kalkofenbach stream, Welte erected a 5×5-metre concrete cube featuring a total of 820 openings drilled on site (each with a diameter of 25 cm). This perforated monolith contains a rectangular water basin and a drinking station. The boreholes are precisely arranged on all five surfaces of the cube, suspending the pavilion somewhere between the twin poles of protection and exposure. Despite its membrane-like permeability, the cube acts as a filter between the inside and outside. Its location among lush vegetation also lends it an archaic edge.
