New artwork by Milou van Ham
The artwork TIME by Milou van Ham was unveiled on February 13. The facade artwork can be seen above the JD Sports flagstore at Lijnbaan 91.
Commissioned by JD Sports, Mei architects renovated the retail premises on the Lijnbaan. JD Sports is located on the corner of Lijnbaan and Van Oldenbarneveltplaats and is part of the 'Lijnbaancomplex' national monument. The starting point for the renovation of the facades was to (largely) restore them to the historic image of 1955. This also meant that new art would be added to the facade, as a reference to the original work that was lost in the 1970s went. This building-related artwork with the title TIME was designed by Milou van Ham and manufactured by Kunstregie.
Siebe Thissen (BKOR) gave the opening speech and Robert Winkel (Mei architects and planners) and Milou van Ham gave a short explanation and then revealed the artwork.
TIME was made possible with advice from BKOR and a financial contribution from CBK Rotterdam.
