CITIES - sculptures and land art

Rotterdam

In 1983 the city of Rotterdam commissioned Lucien den Arend to make a proposal for a sculpture for the subway stations on the Marconi Square on the west side of the city. Den Arend made a construction with three large concrete squares, each seven and a half meters square, twenty centimeters thick. The total weight is eighty four tons. He called the sculpture Marconi Waltz - homage to Oud and van Doesburg. The Spangen housing project, where architect J.J.P. Oud worked together with Theo van Doesburg, is just around the corner. The name Marconi Waltz is inspired by Mondriaan's title Broadway Boogie Woogie.
