Time Landscape

If you are waiting for a train in a major station there is no need to get bored; you can go shopping, read a magazine or get yourself a cup of coffee. But what to do in a smaller train station? To get the passengers waiting at Eindhoven Beukenlaan station moving, Renée Heijkoop has come up with the Time Landscape: a five-minute walk around the landscape which allows people to experience time and the surroundings. “The dials in the landscape indicate how far along you are. To involve other travellers, the shelter on the platform overlooks the walk. The stairs leading to it also act as a kind of stand from which the walking passengers can be observed.”
