This installation is located on the multigenerational square of Referinghausen. In the lower part, seating possibilities for young and elderly have been cut out from two concrete cubes. During the manufacture, the villagers attached old windows, doors and memorabilia to the concrete formwork in order to leave a permanent imprint for future generations. The upper part is made out of wood, from which the half-timbered houses in the Sauerland were once built. On the one hand, it serves as a roof and on the other hand as a central luminous element for the dark hours.
