More > lighting at night, but this book aims to show the beauty that exists in the human-made concrete and steel structures contrasting with soft organic forms from nature. A particular beauty exists in this tough environment. The park as a whole in its new form can be described as a “Gesammtkunstwerk”. A large installation, such as the blast furnace, is made of many small parts, each of them substantially important for the complete process. The various parts and details such as valves, tubes and steel elements make up the building blocks of the installation, yet the local flora is reclaiming the area.

The book contains English, Dutch and German text.< Less
