The column of De Rijp

Sketch design

After my initial research, the plan arose to take the roof sign as a starting point. In the old core and also in the new construction, many houses have a sculpture on the roof. A special fact that gives identity to the various buildings and also has a fascinating history. My plan consists of building a real roof sign of stature. One that rises above the site at the entrance. In addition to being a clear marker and referring to the local architecture and history, the image also has options in terms of color and lighting.
