Recently completed, the pumping station Rodenkirchen was conducted by the V-Architekten architectural firm in collaboration with landscape architect Dirk Melzer. A perforated metal clad volume highlighted.

Located on Uferstrasse in Cologne, this 2 m² pumping station is intended to prevent flooding in the event of flooding from the nearby river. Made of bricks, the construction was cased with finely perforated steel sheets in an organic, dynamic and fluid pattern inspired by the movement of water.
