The Envelope Sculpture
The Envelope Sculpture was designed by artist Frank Sciarone. His sculpture consists of a large steel surface on which a smaller surface has been placed at right angles. One side of the large steel surface is covered with corrugated material as a reference to the water of the Damsterdiep and the Eemskanaal canals between which the neighbourhood is wedged.
One building plot was reserved for the sculpture, which is emphasised by its measurements that can be compared with the adjacent houses: 9 metres high, 12 metres long and 4.5 metres at its broadest point.
