Once upon a time
Blown stainless steel
Zalkerbos 330-336, Zoetermeer
Commissioner: City of Zoetermeer
For the new building of Kentalis Zoetermeer (school that communicates in sign language) I came up with a design based on the hands silhouettes game. Various hand contours of blown steel escape from the slate-clad façade.
Once the sun is out they project an animal kingdom (rabbits, squirrels, swans, goats, elephants etc) of shadows on the wall. As the sun changes position-continuous throughout the day and the year- this image transforms constantly. In the evening, the whole is lit and the animals remain in place.
