a different approach to VIP Lounge at a soccer stadium...

Fans of the famous german fottball club FC St. Pauli in Hamburg not only have a VIP Lounge, they have a VIP House! It has not much to do with concrete, i am putting it here because i find it extraordinary and also because the creative head behind this project is a friend of mine.
I had to laugh so hard when i saw these pictures. (image credits go to Getty images, and Ulmer Pressefoto)
This structure resembles the club and its fans very much... you just have to love it.

There is no chance for me to sell some formwork repair system for this building... but if there would be any exposed concrete and its formwork, i am shure could do a good job

Concrete canoe challenge 2011 results of "my" Team...

finally, we got the final results for the different categories my team took part in:

1. Place for most lighhtweight canoe: 17,5 kg weight at 4,15 mtrs length!
1. Place for best design of race-jersey
2. Place for construction with the our second canoe "OptiMischt".
5. Place for construction with the first canoe: "ArmagETHon"
10. Place for Canoe's design with ArmagETHon.

Altogether 30 Teams with around 60 canoes / vessels competed for the prize. Due to some administrative/organisational misunderstanding, our team was unable to win the athletic competition. But after all: They're engineers, not paddlers...

It was a fine challenge and i am very proud of the team!
