The Growthmonument represents the blossoming and flourishing of the city of Tilburg and was realized as part of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the city. The monument is located at the Mommerscomplex, which is a metaphorical living monument. This inspired the designer to a design, which would literally be built up from living matter. The overgrowth lends to the monument the dynamics of nature. It literally grows, and this ensures that it always looks alive. It is not a massive volume but a transparent, open structure. The new volume can be read as an addition to the industrial complex: a shape that brings to mind the high factory buildings of the area. A platform connects the interior space with the courtyard and facilitates encounters and exchanges. In doing so, the monument adopts the part of accelerator in the creative public domain. And with the volume being a visible experience of the present, the platform is the first step towards the future.
