Location: Region Administration Building Rohrbach / Austria
Completion: 2008


In the region of Rohrbach in the province of Upper Austria you still find a rather pure dialect, which is appreciated as a cultural heritage in spite of changes and the influence of new words. Additionally it gives identity to this region.The dialect pronunciation of the names of the forty-two communities of the region is the basis for a light installation for the new building of the local government of Rohrbach. The arrangement of the names of the communities corresponds with their geographical situation.
