14 meter high "Obelisk" made of carbon

It is the second project cgb realises for the artist Rita McBride. At a road junction north of the River Emscher at the Schurenbachhalde (Schurenbach spoil tip) an almost 14-metre-high obelisk was put up. This artwork was planned, manufactured and installed by cgb. With her installation McBride refers to the history of this region as centre of coal mining in Germany, since the carbon used is produced from carbon fibre.
