Acclaimed and denounced in equal measure by architecture critics all over the world, the square was built on the roof of a parking garage. Various materials were used in its construction, including an epoxy floor, steel and natural stone plates, and wooden flooring. The bent red lamp posts are evocative echoes of dockside cranes. The square is lined in sidewalk cafés, restaurants and theatres.
A. Geuze (1992-1997)
