After discovering the parts on the side of the Rhine, he assembled them into a boat. He sailed this boat, with help from the oar and powered further by his bike, downriver to Basle. Reaching a museum in Switzerland, he reassembled the boat into a grand shed piece. He described the movement of this piece as “mobile architecture”.
