location Zeewolde
function pavilion
contributed by Rene_van_Zuuk

The 'art-track Zeewolde' is a 7 km route passing through an open-air exhibition of high-quality sculptural art. This sculpture park flows out into a pond and in this pond the art pavilion The Imagination is located. With this position in the water, at the end of the art-track, the building becomes the organisational nerve centre for events, exhibitions and lectures. The sculpture Sea Level by Richard Serra has particularly contributed to the art-track's reputation. The elongated shape of the pavilion stems from Serra's long black concrete wall. The limited budget was the occasion for applying a three-hinged frame to construct the span. These originally cheap structures are often used in barns an therefore well-known in the surrounding agricultural polder-landscape. All the trusses are identical but they are all at a slightly different angle compared to the ground surface. The result is an elegantly twisted roofscape.
