A Dutch Designer Fills the Amsterdam Airport With Clouds
I never thought I’d find myself longing to go to an airport just to check out its design. Seeing photos of Daan Roosegaarde’s recent work in Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, however, has me dreaming of a moving sidewalk cloudscape.
Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport continues to tap top-tier Dutch design talent to salve the drudgery of airport travel. After designer Maarten Baas helped the weary traveling masses pass the time by installing a 10-foot performance art clock in Lounge 2 featuring a man painting the passing minutes by hand, on Saturday the ever-innovative Daan Roosegaarde introduced a new permanent artwork that has turned an empty 328-foot-long wall inside Departure Hall 3 into a modern-day Dutch landscape painting of a cloudy blue sky.
