Ney & Partners wins design for Wilhelmina IBA Parkstad (NL) - (January 25, 2017)

Viewpoint Wilhelminaberg

In the beginning of January, the jury of the Internationale Bauaustellung Parkstad made public their preference for the design of Ney & Partners. A specific geometric shape – the oloid – is the inspiration for the crowning of the 20th century slag heap. The former remainder of the mining history will become a viewpoint.  It is the terminus of an existing 90 m high staircase. The platform is a new public space and wants to be a 21st century icon for the region. The client IBA, the local authorities and some entrepreneurs hope to collect the necessary funds by 2020 by the end of IBA Parkstad. copyright: bmd – Ney & Partners
