Urban Structures – 2010

In 2010, Essen, Istanbul and Pécs were in the centre of cultural attention, as these cities were given the European Capital of Culture title for the duration of the year. It was in reaction to the cultural “field” demarcated by these cities and the CCE project itself that we created a water architecture concept. In addition to the visual structure of the cities, we also wished to emphasise not only their physical properties, but also their role as entities bearing cultural meaning and symbolic function.

The process of Essen, Istanbul and Pécs coming to occupy the same map inspired us to create the map system of a fictive city. After taking the structure of these three cities and superimposing individual details on each other, the thus formed layers produced a plastic art-like spatial fabric. The complexly segmented system clearly resembles its map predecessor; it is the envisioned structure of a town that never was. In each case, we selected the centres which defined the cities, and which through history have been established as their intellectual and cultural fulcrums. The sculpture was placed in front of the former Episcopal Palace of Pécs. The horizontal system of the map surrounded by planar surfaces effect a strong contrast with the Renaissance-age ruins.

The cityscapes appear with various depths. As the streets of Pécs have water flowing through them, its urban “circulatory system” has a more significant plasticity of 15 cm. Essen, on the other hand, was carved at 4cm, while Istanbul was sculpted with a depth of 2 cm.

The water sculpture is not in operation till this day. It stands covered in Tettye, above the Szatmáry ruins. No one has ever laid eyes on it. What prompted the work is no longer current. The reason for its creation has passed, without the public ever seeing the work.
