Anti-Babel Tower

Prix de Rome 2010

Amsterdam

The area chosen fas site for the Prix de Rome 2010 was the neighbourhood of Slotevaart in Amsterdam. The multicultural area has a recent history related to the modern devepoment during the 60's in Europe. The concept was to cover the surface of the original square with a grid of lamps that will act as protectors of the public space against its use as parking place. The grid follows the same structure one of the the building next to the square has, reproducing a house particularity common to all the inhabitants from different nationalities, religions and cultures on the public space.
