Here it comes – probably the longest photo gallery ever. But what can you do? The photos are so wonderful, it’s hard to let go of a single one. Many thanks to our fabulous photographer Thomas Langens.
It soon becomes clear: the maze first needs a basic structure. For this, frames are built from wooden slats and wide strips of film are added. Hey presto – the wall is finished!
Now it's time to work on the details. For months, the team at the Bleiberger Fabrik has been collecting objects that nobody wants anymore. The items are carefully worked ...
All the wheels turn when you operate the pedal, which has now become a crank handle. And there was also a cute "Weel of Forchune".
The end result is something to be proud of. Suddenly there's a completely new view of the good old Cathedral.
While the young Archimedeans take a break, the kids from the sandbox check out the maze. No problem with that. After all, the concept was to create an "interactive maze" – and that means the kids can try out everything the Archimedeans have built ...
There are plenty of musical instruments to discover: the "Noise-o-Mat", for example. And there's even a "Rattle Room".
Some days were so hot that shade was urgently needed. And then, for a change, it rained cats and dogs. Well, Archimedes' Sandbox is an open-air event, after all! But luckily, most of the time the weather was "sandbox-compatible".
Archimedes' Sandbox – 18th July to 4th August 2019
A big "thank you" to everyone who helped make the 2019 Archimedes' Sandbox the wonderful experience it turned out to be!
And to all the visitors – big and small – who once again played their part in creating a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere.
We're already looking forward to next year.
