Reiulf Ramstad Architects have created a series of steel installations along a trail that follows the former Rosheim-St Nabor railway in Alsace, France.

The Chemin des Carrières – literally the Quarries Path – stretches for 11km (7mi), joining a number of formerly industrial quarry sites.

The installations have been created at five sites along the route, with each conceived to tell its own story.

At Rosheim, intertwined sculptural circles of corten steel around which visitors can roam with benches for resting and reflection are intended to tell the story of the past.

The Boersch installation celebrates water, with a large amphitheatre at the water's edge providing access to the river.

Two large steel plates at Leonardsau frame the view of the landscape as it opens up, following a lengthy stretch of the trail that is enclosed by greenery.

An installation at Ottrott, with old railway infrastructure like a bridge, a crane and a pump, tells the story of travel.

And, finally, the most notable structure is at Saint-Nabor, where a steel pathway winds its way up the side of the quarry wall and provides a viewpoint from the top, intended to tell the story of luck.
