Elysium Project

A pavilion for environmental education.


To meet the public interest in the quarry of Nussloch and the current technical processes of limestone quarrying, the idea for a designated quarry trail was implemented. The heart of the trail is the Elysium Project, a pavilion or an artificial environment that accommodates a variety of plants, with an emphasis on environmental education. Once you enter the complex, there is a careful constructed landscape, including vegetable gardens, and sculptures as well as an educational trail that provides visitors with information panels on geology, biology, and historical as well as modern mining techniques.
