Warsaw Water Stations​

Edited by Michael Meier and Christoph Franz

The city of Warsaw sits atop reserves of water trapped about 200 metres underground in rock laid down in the Oligocene period. In the early 1990s, nearly a hundred Oligocene well houses were built and became an important element of the urban infrastructure in many districts of Warsaw. The artists document the process of disappearance of this local phenomenon.
