Set up on the river Reuss in Luzern, the mill reveindicates the power of water, a source of energy that has contributed to the development of the city since it’s foundation.
A white cross with the form of a sauwastika rotates with the water, transforms the movement through an alternator into electricity and offers a power plug at the other side of the wall. The sculpture generates a minimal architectonic function, it creates, within an impersonal transit way, a punctual space for use, detention, comfort.
