By choosing the action area of the intervention, we took the historical background as the starting point for the installation of the function at the site with non-ordinary environmental conditions. Our goal was to create a chain-like developing line in connection with the previous development area along the castle wall, and to create a permanent visual element in the city. One of the double fire wheel lifts – inspired ont the masterpiece's fire wheel - is always visible in the section of the castle wall between Dobó Bastion and the Bastion of Kovácsok.
