Werken Archief
Jan van Galen Sportspark
Bos en Lommer, Amsterdam
2003
In the execution of the design for sports ground 'Bos en Lommer' in Amsterdam, the effects of collaboration between Fortuyn/O'Brien and landscape design office Alle Hosper (designer Arjan Karssen) is clearly visible in the result.
The structure of the nets surrounding the sports ground will be knotted by using famous fisherman and macramé knots. This artistic approach will give the sports ground a variety of appearance and references to the lace curtains of the people in the direct environment of the park. The fence expresses a two sided functionality of separation and is a space in itself, a place to be in.
