Zwijndrecht Gemini Tango
In 1984 Lucien den Arend was commissioned to redesign the Oranjeplein (Orange Square) and a local housing association (Gecombineerd Woningbeheer) ordered Gemini Tango. The town's bandstand used to be on the location where the work stands, in the center of the square. The title has a double connotation: Gemini, from the shape of the Gemini Capsule - Tango, the type of movement the two cone segments make, relating to the history of the location. The other meanings at the same time are Gemini - twins, and tango - from the saying "it takes two to tango".
