MVRDV’s design comprises a raised path offering views to the city while providing wall space below to display photographs as part of the biennial event. The Infinity Path will remain in place until the close of the Breda Photo Festival on October 21st.
The form of the structure takes its cue from the square itself, which was designed by West8—the route follows the lines of the pattern which animates the ground plane, and therefore The Infinity Path literally brings a new dimension to the space.
The Infinity Path is an important attraction in the biennial festival event, providing visitors with an opportunity to admire the photography on display and to have a new perspective on the City of Breda.
With a total length of 500 metres and a maximum height of 6 metres, it is supported by a system of scaffolding, making it a design descendent of The Stairs to Kriterion, a temporary project from 2016 in which MVRDV created a staircase leading to the roof of the Groot Handelsgebouw in Rotterdam.
