»Storage facility for the mobile flood barriers near the Rodenkirchen Bridge« – this is the cumbersome name of an exciting building which won the 2009 Cologne Architecture Prize. Both the wave-shaped, sweeping concrete façade and the almost sacred interior seem to invite an exploration of its sonic properties. Jeesoo Hong reacts with a soundwalk around the outside wall of the hall, mixing recorded sounds of the Rhine and its underwater creatures with the surrounding live soundscape. In his audio installation, Caspar Etti listens to the monologue of a tree isolated within one of the building’s miniature courtyards.
