Inspired by a 400 year old tradition of salt production “Kur” is a configuration of wall modules that create healthy sea air for the dwellers of a densely constructed cityscape. Common health-retreats ask for the active ritual of traveling, performing and consequently spending time. “Kur” on the contrary creates a feeling of ease and recovery passively. One just has to walk about the city. Their origin, large architectural constructions had saltwater continuously streaming down a wall of stacked blackthorn. Each drop of saltwater splits on the thorns and evaporates. The salt that is now in the air cures skin and lungs of people exposed to the urban environment. Timo Wuchner transforms the original architecture into a downscaled product for the public space.

The arrangement of modules create a route to briefly pass through and at the same time a space to discover, sit down and relax in.
Placed on a square cities could enable their inhabitants to breathe and smell fresh sea air which would otherwise be exclusive for places near the coast.
