Überfluss is a temporary installation which gives a new perspective on a contemporary fountain. Our aspiration was to create a cool and silent space on an inhospitable area where you can feel and experience water.
Facing polluted and overheating cities Überfluss works with the principle of cooling by evaporation. Water is pumped up the walls, fills a channel, over- flows and drops down the structured walls out of poroton bricks.
The sun heats up the bricks, the water evaporates and the surrounding area cools down. At the same time the falling drops and flowing water are creating an aura of calmness filtering the air.
