Following suit from previous projects, their latest promises to not only re-design our roads – from bike pathways to highways – but subsequently re-define them insofar to how we interact with them. Say hello to Van Gogh Path!
“The recent Van Gogh-Roosegaarde bicycle path is made of thousands twinkling stones inspired by ‘Starry Night’. The path combines innovation with cultural heritage in the city of Nuenen NL, the place where Van Gogh lived in 1883.” – Studio Roosegaarde
Alongside the Van Gogh bicycle path, Studio Roosegaarde have also developed Glowing Lines, which integrates similar technology as that of the Van Gogh, but instead uses glowing lines which wrap around roads and highways for drivers to maintain eye contact with the road at night. International integration is in the works, as are other ideas from its overall Smart Highway project, from smart road signs to lights which only illuminate at your given presence.
