LOVE-KNOWLEDGE-SUPPORT

With every new project Dieter is supported by many people in the background. First there are the cork workers in Portugal, who provide him with the best material. In Germany, he can rely on Mr. Engels for the woodwork with his knowledge and experience. Dieter himself fell in love with cork in 1962 – until today …KorkernteDieter Cöllen, Herr EngelsMy beautiful picture

THE FINAL STEPS

Today Dieter shows us for the last time the inner construction of the Colosseum. After that he will fix it on the wooden base to prepare the object for the final photo shooting. Meanwhile Malgorzata glues the last cork block where it belongs

NORTHERN VISITORS

Yesterday Dieter had charming guests from Finland. The famous TV moderator ELLA KANNINEN  and her team visited his “small kitchen” to talk about cork models and filmed Dieter at work.

We all are waiting now for the result that will be shown at the beginning of next year – thank you so much…

 

 

SHADE ON THE AUDIENCE

 

Now the upper section of the facade is nearly finished including the brackets which support the wooden poles for the shading construction. We don’t know much about that, because all that disappeared during the centuries. Watch here a video about an idea how the VELARIUM could have worked.
