Introduced to the public on 13 november 2011, ‘tiger & turle – magic mountain’ by hamburg-based
duo heike mutter / ulrich genth is a large walkable outdoor sculpture on the heinrich hildebrand höhn
in duisburg, germany. resting on the highest point of the undulating park, the rollercoaster-like
structure allows visitors to walk along its elevated lanes with views of the western ruhr.
Pulling from the rolling nature of the landscape, the three-dimensional sculpture features
a one meter-wide flight of stairs that curves and rises in expressive gestures. much like an actual
rollercoaster, the winding path eventually bends in on itself into a complete – but unwalkable – loop.
the piece required extensive engineering and was developed in collaboration with german architect
arnold walz. LED-lights have been incorporated into the handrails to illuminate the sculpture at night.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know
    what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us
    something enlightening to read?

    I simply desired to thank you so much all over again.

    I do not know the things that I would’ve done without these hints revealed by you over such a concern. Previously it was a fearsome circumstance for me personally, but noticing the very skilled way you processed it forced me to cry with delight. Extremely happier for the service as well as have high hopes you comprehend what a great job that you are providing instructing the others thru your website. Most probably you have never met any of us.
