The first photo is a street sculpture named “Architectural Fragment” by Petrus Spronk, 1992, in front of the State Library. It is a popular work even though it is post-modern sculpture with neo-classical references and you can’t even sit on it (although there is wear on one edge from skateboard riders). “Architectural Fragment” is based on Spronk’s sand-sculpture works.
The library is not only magnificent architecturally, but it is a wonderful exhibition space, study space, relaxation space and refuge from the hustle and bustle of the City! I could quite happily live there!
This post is part of the Signs, Signs meme.
