airport park

20Jun11

Amsterdam Schiphol Airport now includes an airport park – an amazing new addition that exemplifies public art that is both eco-friendly and engaging. Areas of the park exist indoors and outdoors, including pieces of nature in actuality and reproduction. Living trees accompany images of world-famous parks, while subtle projections of nature flicker throughout the park. They even incorporated a sound element of park noises to fill out background noise. You can read more details about the airport park here, at the Pop Up City. (Note the energy-generating bicycles available to charge cell phones!) I am curious to see if other centers for public transportation react to Amsterdam with their own nature-inspired installations.
