Sculptor: Amphitheatre on a Playground 1983
Together with Peter Breed
Comment of a wellknown Dutch architect Herman Herzberger
Comment of a well-known Dutch architect Herman Herzberger This playground has been created for the nearby primary school, but the environment does suggest a location in a park, somewhere a prayer in the grass, a somewhere where for different site levels must be reconciled. The spiral form has a strong attractive operation and brings people together: it is in elementary sense a welcome gesture. The steps suggest seating and the center becomes a matter of a playing surface open for everybody.
This elementary option forms the conformation of the location centrifugal, as a kolk that attracts attention of the surroundings to yourself to know to such. A square in the landscape and actually the theater of Epidauros
in the small. Remarkably enough this architectural challenge has been created by artists with more architecture in their head and fingers than most architects who are dreaming of the production of art.
