a house’s exterior drainage system in dresden, germany…
this is a beautiful thing… whimsy, meets practicality… in art… i love it!
I didn’t realize Dr. Seuss owned real estate.
I’m curious about the funnel in the lower center, just in front of a window. Is that so the owner can pee out of his window?
Very cool otherwise.
very cool, but, wouldn’t it stink pretty bad, and you’d have to fix it yourself if it leaked. yuck!
They’re storm drains, dude, not sewer lines. :-]

It looks like there are flowers planted in that funnel, so it might be a combo planter/drainage system. Plants get overwatered, the excess drains through the gutter.
Really hard to tell. The straight vertical run on the right, looks to be a waste vent stack. The mess on the left looks to be a roof drain. Look far out, but I’m not so sure how cool it would be I wonder how noisy it can be during an extended long hard rain? I don’t think I’d want to be trying to sleep in that building during a good old High Plains Tstorm down pour.
So, what happens if leaves get stuck in the gutter? Heh.
