return of Vincent van Gogh








In 1990 the municipality of Groningen commissioned Lucien den Arend to make a proposal for a landscape project on the contours of the urban space, which projects like peninsula's into the landscape. The Groningen landscape consists of vast farmland and a flat polder landscape. In this area large stretches of forest were to be planted.

Lucien den Arend suggested using the forest to create an environmental project bringing back to memory the fashion in which the wooded land used to be cleared in the past centuries. In this way he uses architectural shapes which echo the urban public space - the sides of the entrance path to be formed by two rows of oak trees, their foliage cut to evoke the feeling of the urban environment between the facades of buildings. The trunks would resemble a colonnade like in classical cities. At the end of the kilometer long path there is a clearing - with the colonnade continuing along its perimeter. The form of this urban-like square is the same as that of the inner spaces of monumental classical architecture.

After the exhibition exemplary projects in 1990, in which clearing was presented, the city waits for the realization possibilities.
