Nordstadtpark

Nordstadtpark in Kassel is full of people on any summer evening or weekend, a place of leisure for the truly multinational neighborhood, as well as for students at the University of Kassel and visitors to the adjacent Kulturzentrum Schlachthof, which organizes events, community activities, and language courses for the many immigrant communities that live in the area.

Extending the vitality of the site into a monumental ecological structure is Agnes Denes’s The Living Pyramid (2017), a sculpture that is simultaneously organic and social in both its need for and reciprocation of care.
