Germany’s Federal Horticultural Show (BUGA) 2011 takes place in the city of Koblenz. In close cooperation with the Austrian ropeway manufacturer Doppelmayr, Werner Sobek designed key elements for the ropeway which connects the Castle of Ehrenbreitstein with the city centre. Werner Sobek was not only responsible for the graphic design and the interior of the cabins, but also for the membrane panels which serve as weather-protecting panels for the upper and lower stations. The covering is made of 1mm mesh fabric which spans over a filigree glued-laminated girders bearing structure.
