Hafenbad

Hafenbad von Dirk Paschke in der Daimlerstrasse 1996

A full functional outdoor swimming pool for just one summer. Again the work of Dirk Paschke (and Daniel Milohnic). His next major contribution since Gartners and the Hafenbar (situated on the same venue). As the place belongs to the sculpture departement of the local artschool (Städelschule), Dirk Paschke was able to use it while being a student there. The swimming pool, actually a sculpture, turned out to become very popular; maybe one reason that the artschool administration turned down its operation after one summer on reasons of improper insurance.

Time of Operation
May 1996 - September 1996

Abandoned since
October 1996

Fate
The place belongs to the art school (Städelschule) and parts of the communal theater, used now for waste and storage.

This project is no more in operation.
The place itself may still exist.
