Chris Eggers writes in his Blog: This is a once in a lifetime opportunity! The Bowl at Block 37 in Winterthur, Switzerland is up for grabs! If you want it you can get it for free! You just have to dismantle it and carry it away. Erwin Rechsteiner of Bowl.ch informs that you need space of about 14 x 23 meters. The Bowl is 1,80 - 4,80 meters (cradle) high. It is no problem to make it smaller or even bigger. The Bowl will not suffer from the move due to the construction. The parts are not larger than 1,10 x 2,20 meters, except for a few beams. The surface is a bit slippery at the moment because it was not maintained, but if it is cleaned intensively it will be like new again.
