The Egg shelter photo 2

Wetterskip Fryslân


This Esscher-like "egg" is one of the first "test sites" realized by the cooperating owners around the Potmarge. In 2017 they (together with the municipality Leeuwarden and Wetterskip Fryslân) committed themselves to an ambition statement to jointly create a city park experience revolving around the Potmarge and to show the importance of innovation for this place. The cooperating owners have chosen the egg as artwork because it is similar in shape to an underwater drone, a larva, which one can often find underwater and because it has an Esscher look, an artist from Leeuwarden.
