Autumn 1958 marked the launching of the Bodensee-Wasserversorgung (Lake Constance water supply), an infrastructure project whose largest part is underground. Even in the first phase of the project, 2160 liters of water per second were taken from Lake Constance and transported over hundreds of kilometers of pipeline to the greater Stuttgart area. What is remarkable about this project is the special quality of the design of the visible parts of the waterworks, a result of the collaboration of engineers, architects, landscape designers and artists: Hermann Blomeier, architect; Walter Rossow, landscape architect; Hans-Dieter Bohnet, Martin Matschinsky and Brigitte Matschinksy-Denninghof, visual artists.
Andreas Schwarting is professor of architectural history and architecture theory at the Hochschule Konstanz. He was appointed by the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) to monitor the UNESCO world-heritage sites of the Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau.
