N359 – Rakelings 2010

Commisioned by Atelier Fryslan.
In collaboration with Feddes-Olthof landscape architects.

The commision is to combine plans to upgrade a road with a fresh look at the way this 50 year old road is fitted into the landscape. This demands careful weighing of the changes that such an adaptation will have in store. To think about is road is to think about how we live, where we work, who we are or want to be, paying attention to the different speeds in a landscape. This cultural philosophical approach is a worthy addition to knowledge of the landscapes and traffic logistics.
