A8 viaduct Zaanstad

Rijkswaterstaat (of the Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management) in The Netherlands, the city of Zaanstad and the Praktijkbureau of the Ministry of Culture initiated the realization of art in relation the Dutch national highway network. One of the first projects took place in Zaanstad.

In the second variation of the proposal the encircling curved forms were rationalized and became two half pipes - hinged where they rest on the ground

Where they connect, the contours of the edges form a circle which has been opened by the turning movement of the two elements. Here the idea of encapsulate the bridge has been converted to a scissor-like suggestion of movement. It can be seen as a protest against the brutal way highways can destroy the environment. It is in fact the ''V' for victory.
