looking coal…

A few weeks ago David West and Christophe Egret were invited by Building Design to visit a place that inspired them.  They chose Zollverein coal mine in Essen as an example of a reinvented place that uses inventive programming, strong landscape and narrative to create a rich new platform for sustainable development. 

Today the story by Pamela Buxton and photos by Ed Tyler were published. Coal Shute or Cool Shoot? You decide..
