Astana is a seven meter high public sculpture commissioned by the municipality of Rotterdam. The studio took the opportunity to design a piece to serve the urban community, an addition to the city landscape with an underlying social function. They designed a sculpture that people could use and interact with, a site for public convening. Now it is about letting nature take its course, grass getting greener and trees growing while urban communities find their own way to use Astana and make it their own.
