Integrating Infrastructure

Leeuwarden by-pass, Leeuwarden, NL

The extension of the N31 highway around Leeuwarden needs a design to embed the “Haak om Leeuwarden” into the Frisian landscape. Because the new highway runs through the historic Middelzee area, the metaphor of the “terp” was used to create both a natural link to the landscape and a landmark in that landscape to emphasize the transition to the city of Leeuwarden.
