Design for the square in front of ‘Theater aan het Spui’, The Hague.1996
Honored with a budget to experiment from Stroom HCBK.
I did research on the history of the place. The ancient jewish quarter was condemned and redesigned as a cultural quarter with theaters.
I did research on the influence of the square Does this have a positive function for the city.What is the function of a square in cultures outside Europe. Does it stimulate people to live outdoors?
Why did the architect divide the square into two parts by a busy road ?
I made a design with a swing, so you can look at the other side of the square.
I made a booklet of the project.
