Project for Fort Beneden Lent, Nijmegen

Around this historical site, the green landscape is rapidly transforming into a new urban living area. As this site is a listed monument, it is protected from the building plans. My intention was to make it a silent, green oasis centered in the built environment.

My proposal for this site consisted of two interventions:

1. Emptify the site by removing everything but the monumental buildings. A total clean up of the debris, chicken sheds and wasted furniture that was left behind and removal of the paths, in order to return the site to nature

2. TheĀ  installation of a sculpture that acts as a silent whitness and guard of the site.

Commissioned by the city of Nijmegen as part of the Hof van HolLand Art project
