Together with architect Helmut Kuess and building on the basis of workshops held with public relations staff from the various local communities Reinhard Gassner developed the idea for the Panorahmen.
The name is a word play based on panorama and Rahmen, the German word for frame.
Panorahmen are striking steel frames with viewing windows which have been erected at 34 locations in the various Rhine Valley communities.
They offer a view of public squares, buildings and landscapes where vision rheintal (vision rhine valley) takes place or intended to take place. The architects Geli Salzmann and Eva Lingg finalised the design.
