Quick Description: This is the Arsenaaltoren. It is the largest work of art in the South-West of the Netherlands and part of an amusement park. The top reminded me of a UFO, combined with the open steel beam structure. A Googie architecture building.

Long Description:
"The Arsenaaltoren was illuminated by means of a sophisticated lighting plan by New Urban View, which also recently illuminated the Kloveniersdoelen and the old town hall in Middelburg. The viewing platform can now radiate different colors and the outside of the building is also illuminated.

The tower can be rented for exclusive arrangements such as a wedding or business meetings."

The text “Somewhere I am, I am nowhere” (NL: “Ergens ben ik anders ben ik nergens”) is by Loek Grootjans and was inspired by the work of Georges Perec, a French writer he greatly admires. For Grootjans, this graphic design was almost self-evident in the Vlissingen profile of signs and beacons.
