On April 12th Zeestad and the Municipality of Den Helder announced MVRDV with their design ‘SeaSaw’ as the winner of the pitch for an icon on the dike. Arttenders acted as art consultant in the initial phase of this design pitch, and we are excited that Den Helder is going to be adorned with this highly technical design by MVRDV.
“The Seasaw for Den Helder is a memorable, undulating public art installation which responds to its context and history, whilst literally representing the dynamics of the sea in its infinite movement. The installation respects the existing dike whilst allowing visitors and inhabitants to experience both city and sea from a whole new perspective.”
