PERSPECTIVES, Additon Schacht 12 Essen

Perspectives is the contribution of korth tielens to the jubilee edition of FORUM 'Building upon Building' in which excisting buildings are researched by fictional expanding them. Korth tielens was asigned by FORUM magazine with Schacht 12 in Essen Germany by Fritz Schupp, 1928 – 1932.

Schacht 12 is the beginning of a city within a city within a city, with new perspectives, rhythms, spaces and levels.

"Every goal that is achieved is once again the beginning of a new course of action, and so on to infinity (...)." Schopenhauer, The World as Will and Representation

Brick, glass and the steel structure form a sort of super-rhythm: a rhythm in which magnificent perspectives exist between the buildings. Objects such as ever-smaller streetlights exaggerate the perspective as in a Jacques Tati film set, revealing the extreme manner in which perspective functions in the entire building. Today Schacht 12 can be viewed in SketchUp's library. This allows you to digitally wander around its stunning perspective and actively play and interact with it - which in the past could only be done and experienced in a static manner. Schacht 12 is the stepping-stone of a vertically stacked city. Its incredible perspectives - rotated from horizontal to vertical - have become its starting point: a stacked city filled with new levels that stretch out infinitely.
