Silos

The island is never finished

In our vision for the development of the silos on Zeeburger Island the new functions are flexible and directly meet the requirements of the island’s residents. They determine the programme at ground floor level and the liveliness of the plinth. Every four years an Olympic sporting hero will be appointed as keeper of the sport related programmes and the maintenance of the distinctive primary form. Contrary to this the children of the island determine the essentials for liveability of the neighbourhood underneath the silos. No programme is too crazy and therefore a mixed character is born. As a result, the shape of the island will continue changing in the future!
