Submerged Public Spaces
Austria's Vocklabruck Spot is Set Beneath the Waters of a Pond

By: Jordy Eleni (Superstar) Apr 5, 13

Austria’s Vocklabruck region has incorporated a submerged public space. Sunk beneath the pond is a round seating area, one that blends into the surrounding landscape in a seamless manner. 

Visitors to this structure can sit literally within the bed of water. Perks come from the way in which it keeps locals and tourists dry while in the direct presence of the pond, enabling them to take in nature from a close distance. Of course, the temperature of the waters can be felt with a quick graze of one’s palm, though this is up to the discretion of those seated within the sphere. The aim however is to keep all those participating in the space warm and dry.
