Gates of Light

Afsluitdijk: Gates of Light

Every day, more than 20,000 vehicles pass the "gates of light" on the Afsluitdijk of Daan Roosegaarde. In the dark, the strips light up through the headlights of these passing cars. As a result, the "gateway" to Waterland of Friesland has been transformed into a futuristic entrance through the monumental locks from 1932.

In 2019, Daan Roosegaarde won the "International Architecture Transportation Award" with the "GATES OF LIGHT"
