Astronomical Observatories in Germany
The project “Astronomical Observatories in Germany“ examines the current situation of observatories in Germany.
Through astronomical research institutes humans have created themselves the opportunity to explore the universe from their home planet to find their own identity and origin.
This work provides an insight into the most important and most significant observatories in Germany and shows the character and the dimensions of these institutes. Furthermore it focuses on the working spaces, the special technical instruments and the unique architecture.
The photographic study is based on the assumption that the human exploratory urge and inquisitiveness is reflected in the technologies and facilities.
