A 1950s train station, 1930s office buildings and a medieval cathedral are all distorted and compressed in the facets and prisms of a brightly coloured urban kaleidoscope in the city centre of Cologne.
“The idea is that the crystal reflects and fragments the city,” says architect Marco Hemmerling, who created the structure known as “Cityscope” as part of an architecture festival in the west German city. “Everything is out of context. The spires of the cathedral are next to the station. You begin to perhaps understand the density of what is happening in the city.”
