Commissioner: City of Den Helder
Like the city Den Helder originated from the sea, the stairs and sculptural forms look like they have been washed ashore, tilted over the dike and rolled in to the city. Because of this arises a orientation point, a panoramic viewpoint and a place to stay for recreation, events and encounters.
The dike as a elongated triangle, like the letter D (∆) from ‘delta’, the triangle in the Greek alphabet and as symbol for the city Den Helder, which is surrounded bij sea on three sides. The design for Delta is a spatial composition made of monumental concrete stairs on both sides of the dike about which tilt big triangular sculptures of steel and glass. The composition visualises the dynamic connection between sea, dike and city.
