Alfred Eikelenboom, Untitled, 1994

Center of The Hague: Spui - Grote Markstraat - Kalvermarkt

Part of The Sculpture Gallery

All his life the sculptor Alfred Eikelenboom (1926-2014) worked at developing a new visual language as an alternative for the typical use of monotonous building blocks. He did this with his ‘utopian models'. This sculpture serves as an example. Whereas in architecture we see squares and cubes, Eikelenboom looked at circles and cylinders in nature. He used these shapes to create his ‘utopian models'.
