Two buildings, similar in form to each other but contrasting to there context, mark the space of the square. Two cone-like shapes form the entrance to the bicycle parking under a central strip of ceramic tiles, fountains lights and glass elements embedded in the square floor. At night the light elements together with the light coming through the glass elements from the parking, will create a tapestry of light.Photography by Rob’t Hart and Rob HoekstraSource.
