Dokkum Market Square

With the new design for the Market square in Dokkum by HOSPER, ice-making will take place in an innovative way in the coming year, linking Bonifatius, the "Elfstedentocht" and climate change.

For this important historical site the design was realized through an extensive participation process. HOSPER made models for this purpose which represented the possible design scenarios that were then discussed in both the "Mienskipkommisje" and public information meetings. The wildly supported design forms an integral plan in which the many historical elements of this place form part of the design and which, at the same time, forms a natural pedestal for the planned Icefountain. The construction is currently in progress; the square will be opened on 18 May 2018.
