The River-Jump-Buoy

The River Buoy

The city Nijmegen, situated on the south border of the main branch of the Rhine in the Netherlands, locally known as the river Waal, took a historical decision in 1996. City planners cross the millenia years old natural and cultural border to develop a new town for 40.000 people on the north side of the river.

To visualize the historical leap across this cultural border Frank Bezemer designed a huge sculpture entitled River Buoy, a building and landmark at the same time.
