How can the STOA169 columned hall be accessed?

Only on foot: visitors can reach it either by taking a ten minute walk along the footpath from Polling or by walking from the nearby car park next to the Roßlaichbrücke, at the link road to Peißenberg. Bicycles can be parked in various designated areas.

How far away is the river?

The Ammer is situated approximately 200m away.

Are you planning additional buildings directly next to the columned hall?

No. The optics of the hall and its proximity to nature will not be disturbed by any further structures.

Will an entry fee be charged to view the hall?

No entry fee shall be charged. We appreciate a donation.

Is it possible for individuals with disabilities to visit the site?

The paths and entry to the hall are limited barrier-free.
Visitors with a disabled parking permit may drive up to STOA169 and park in the designated space during the visit. Please place the permit clearly visible on the dashboard.

How will you guarantee the conservation of the surrounding natural habitat?

The lot is approx. 35.000 sq metres in size; only five percent of the area is to be built upon without sealing the ground. The columned hall will be built as much in tune with nature as possible, and the encompassing green space will additionally be ecologically upgraded.

What will happen to the agricultural land that immediately borders the site?

It will continue to be farmed just as before.

What will happen to any rubbish left by visitors?

The STOA169 Foundation and its team also take care of that.

What particular conservation methods are planned for the columned hall?

The columns will be weather resistant but, inevitably, after several years some restoration work will be necessary, for which the foundation will assume responsibility.

How will the artwork be protected from vandalism?

Public art can never be completely protected from such damage, but experience shows that it is more often than not well-respected.

What are the columns made of? What sort of a load must they bear?

The artists will decide for themselves as to the choice of materials. There are structural requirements that have to be adhered to.

How is the rainwater drained?

The rainwater is led through recesses in the roof to the floor slab.

Does the project offer anything for children?

The chance to experience art in the middle of nature offers a profound experience for everyone, even for children and teenagers; special educational programmes are being developed for them.

Will there be a café or kiosk located next to the hall?

Both are planned to be in the vicinity of the car park. No structures will be built in direct proximity to the STOA169 hall.

Will the architecture of the hall be open? Will the animals there be disturbed?

It will remain open, allowing birds and wild animals to fly and roam through it. Since there is to be no artificial lighting there, at night they will have their peace and quiet.

Is there electricity on the premises?

There will be neither artificial light sources nor other electrification.
