This map is designed for the residents association, the objective was to make sure new residents and visitors could easily find their way around the complex. Even though the complex is not large it turned out people easily mistook one building for another, because there are five identical buildings. One aspect that should help is the fact that the buildings are colour coded, but because the colours faded over time this has not been sufficiently clear. The map itself has been designed in collaboration with Sylvain Tegroeg, The metal stand is designed to last, made out of maintenance free Cor-ten steel, mounted in a concrete underground foot. The Shape is minimal yet successfully drawing attention to the map.
The light artwork “The Beehive” reflects the spirit of WOW-Amserdam . A temporary home for young art professionals, urban explorers and much more.
With a focus on the vibrant character of WOW this light art work is like a totem, the small lights resemble the people passing through, they travel from distant places, like bees they fly into their hive, where they can stay and feel at home, but also work and adding to the legacy, to the spirit, with its ever changing colours the hive shines out to the world with all the diversity which it accumulates it embodies the soul of the creative explorer.
To be unveiled around the end of 2015.
