Commission: A fence that relates to the 60 year old park and at the same time to the bordering contemporary architecture.

Along the unity of the lattice-row, the inner fence varies in height and speed. The materials used emphasise the character of both sides:

the city's side is powerful, with a rhytm, both feet on the ground;
 the park's side is playful and unpredictable.
