CITIES - sculptures and land art
The city of Amsterdam selected Lucien den Arend in 1982 to make a proposal for a sculpture the entrance area of the combined police station and fire station Flierbosdreef on the avenue with the same name in the Amsterdam Bijlmer. The sculptor used the system of the linear structure of the facades of the building and projected the perimeter of the sculpture onto the asphalt and extended the lines as if they were sketched. Actually they were sawn into the street and filled with the same white plastic material as the lines on streets.
