One of the most famous projects initiated by the sponsoring association is the "Auerworldpalast" made of willow rods. Under the direction of the Swiss architect Marcel Kalberer and the Gentle Structures Group, volunteers from all over the world came to Auerstedt in spring 1998 to "plant" the largest living willow building. The prime example "Auerworldpalast" has inspired several subsequent projects.

The first full moon festivals in the Auerworldpalast with live concerts under growing willows were already included in the official program of the European cultural city of Weimar in 1999. The renewable natural building quickly developed into a magnet for visitors and was described in detail in international architectural journals.
The author duo Marcel Kalberer / Micky Remann also contributed to the popularization of the principle of willow cultivation with the books "Das Weidenbaubuch" and "Grüne Kathedralen" (Green Cathedrals) published by AT-Verlag.

But the greatest popularity of the Auerworldpalast is due to the annual Auerworld-Festivals that take place there. It is difficult to say which moments at the willow rod palace are the most beautiful ones: The quiet ones, when one looks at this bizarre natural building from below or the exciting ones, when a thousand dancers move around the palace to the rhythm of the music.

The natural building by the architect Marcel Kalberer and his architecture group Gentle Structures is based on the oldest building methods of mankind. Especially the mudhif buildings made of woven reed, as they have been known in Mesopotamia for about 5000 years, inspired the architect to build with nature. In his search for a native plant that could be used to create comparable constructions, Kalberer came across the pollarded willow. Its shoots, tied together to form arches, are ideal for building hybrid natural works of art. "The difference between house and garden dissolves. Here the caretaker is also the gardener," laughs the architect. www.sanftestrukturen.de/Weidenbau/Weidenbau
