7:32 pm
be able to see forests in zoom like environment. anyone expecting to see penalties that stadium captain floats will be in for a bit of a surprise there's not much soccer going on in this forest. for his project the swiss artist was inspired by a drawing by the austrian artist. called the unending attraction of nature. basically what i'm doing here is trying to produce a quite radical picture and i'm dealing with an underlying theme that next point now also have both of us independently of each other and that's perception. how do we deal with our perceived nature we go to. visitors are not allowed to touch or enter the forest only look at the.
7:33 pm
next month wanted to create a warning monument about the climate crisis it took him 6 years to realize the 4 forest project. he worked together with the swiss landscape architect and so in the. ninety's when it's a single these are the different species here so those there are the black pines you know. they've been replanted 16 tiles is a. 199 trees were planted between the goal posts creating a mixed forest which has become quite rare in europe these days the trees were located in various german french and italian nurseries some of them were 50 years old all the trees had been transplanted several times so they could cope before being transported the roots were pruned and bound together into

a ball then they were fixed into the ground thus the trees will survive without damage to the roots. of things and so if it was very difficult for me to find a proportion to the stadium because at 1st i couldn't imagine how it would be. so then i imagined footballers playing there about 1.8 meters tall on average and then i imagine them passing balls to each other long shots high shots. and the stadium posts $30000.00 seats and just as many ways of seeing the forest visitors to the forest can either sit or wander around the rows. whose artworks also feature in new york's museum of modern art is the visionary who imagined a stadium forest over 40 years ago. but his was not
7:35 pm
a wild mixed forest. but if you see a story those great that the forest is different from mine on my way over here i was really scared that they had managed to capture my forest but now. i'm really glad that they do it. in the photos seem nice to. see. the artwork was financed privately including by collectors and this was fun. klaus littman had discovered the stadium in 2013 and persuaded the city of camden for it to agree to his idea. the project has both supporters and critics say. it's exactly what we need in order to think about the climate change problem that we have right now. shucks i think it's nonsense to be honest this doesn't belong in a football stadium it's so obvious and it's a warning monument it's huge parts of the amazon forest have birth down recently because of deforestation and this project shows how important
7:36 pm
a forest and its function is if there are to be from artisans. for forest is a sustainable project visitors can enjoy until the end of october the stadium opens to late at night afterwards the trees will be transplanted again and will set down their roots not far away for the long term. it's that time of year again when cars take center stage at the international auto show in frankfurt now much of the focus is on promoting electric cars but what do you do if you have a vintage vehicle that still runs on an old catalytic converter well even these old cars are being brought into the era of electric mobility. not all vintage cars have to be noisy and smelly. isn't joint a new experience his steam powered car from 1938 now has an electric
7:37 pm
motor. so if this car is 80 years old and now it's experiencing a revival we can enjoy the landscape very quietly my intention is not to change the climate with my car i couldn't do that but i'm sending out a signal. showing people that it is possible to make changes if you really want to . could this become a trend. and has developed a business model in vincent not far from hamburg in northern germany old cars are equipped with modern technology each model is individually fitted with the right components such a conversion can cost up 210-0000 euros. there are enthusiastic who really want to drive fully electric cars but there was nothing on offer except a boring tesla which is like a moving i pad that's how we began in 2015 for people who wanted a car that they really liked. all of these models are unique. but not everyone is
7:38 pm
convinced about retrofitting vintage cars. drives a benz victoria from 894 that makes it one of the oldest cars in the world he can't imagine fitting it with an electric motor. it would be more than a sin it would be irresponsible ignorance. and fin it would be showing disrespect for the past simply replacing it with something new and you would be castrating the vehicle so to speak. for many collectors these cars are an investment and their value is measured by how close they are to the original. cuts from berlin has created and in. decks to determine how the price of a car should be evaluated. can see paris in principle the value of a vintage car would sink because it would no longer be historical of the value is
7:39 pm
only particularly high if a car still boasts the original engine and original gear unit. but doesn't an old car with a new motor remain an old car for collectors such as philip but johnny absolutely not he would never swap the gasoline engine from his 1970 s. b.m.w. . but redefining it out of that would be like taking out the car's heart. the engine is the heart of the b.m.w. it would be like hauling it out it would be removing the car's heart and probably it sold to. that's how it's. in there. and he's not worried about the fact that gasoline engines might eventually be down . there making its if the cars with gasoline engines are banned and i'll just let it stand somewhere. and it'll be of cultural value and just stay in one place. would. be shots on the tomatoes that's what i like about
7:40 pm
old cars is that they represent a certain period in time and i can experience the history firsthand i'm not in a museum i can really feel how it was at the time just would not support you don't need to rattle the engine but you can still feel how it was to drive with the springs the imprecise steering and the way it looks to you. so the engine no longer has to rattle it can simply current thanks to the motors even vintage cars can be state of the art. time now to take a trip and europe is great for weekend. getaways but how do you decide what to do when you only have a couple days to sightsee well leave it up to me to give you some tips on my latest perfect weekend away i visited iceland's capital reykjavik and its surroundings now
