Beleving Spooronderdoorgangen Almere Buiten Centrum is a project commissioned by the municipality of Almere that focuses on brightening up the railroad underpasses in the neighborhood of Almere Buiten Centrum. For this project, we are looking for new talent: all artists and designers that have a link with Almere can apply! To learn more about this Call for Interest, visit www.arttenders.com/StationAlmereBuiten (in Dutch).
Arttenders was asked to draw attention to the Almere Buiten train station by upgrading two railroad underpasses that connect two parts of this lively neighborhood. This intervention fits in with the municipality's plans to turn Almere Buiten Centrum into an attractive destination for residents, visitors and travelers. With the transformation of this place, both an experience and a new icon are created for the city quarter.
Arttenders' approach meets many functional requirements concerning safety, lighting, quality of stay and the prevention of stray bikes. In addition, the applied artwork has a connecting function, because there is a lot happening on both sides of the station! The railroad underpasses are dealt with both practically and aesthetically so that added value is created for their use and the experience of Almere Buiten Centrum.
Arttenders x YOU?
We want to put local talent in the spotlight! That's why we began the search for two artists and/or designers who want to seize this opportunity to each come up with a concept for Beleving Spooronderdoorgangen Almere Buiten Centrum! One of both ideas will be permanently implemented in the public space in the end.
Are you the promising design talent we are looking for? Are your roots in Almere? Do you live or work there? And are you available for the design trajectory between January 4 and February 4, 2021? Surf to www.arttenders.com/StationAlmereBuiten and submit your application. The deadline for the Call for Interest is Sunday November 29, 2020.
