Almeere Monument

What struck me the most when first visiting Almere Port was its desperate attempt at trying to create historical references that do not exist, its suggestions of eras and architectural creation derived from a time when this artificially created land area did not exist. I did a series of illustrations and photo collage as a visual translation of the text that I wrote about Almeere Port, which later became the base for my final design.

I, for now, only have the ability of giving Almere Port a foundation that is reminiscent of mankind’s development, its faith and dreams through history and in the present, a foundation to later carry the historic memory of a great moment in Almere Port’s own history, not from the past, maybe from the present, but most likely from an unborn memory, a memory still waiting to see the light of this bright future.
