Van Gogh-Roosegaarde Bicycle Path Nov 13, 2014

Public works like this can be a lot of fun:

“The new Van Gogh-Roosegaarde bicycle path is made of thousands glowing stones inspired by ‘Starry Night’. It charges at daytime and gives light at night. The path combines innovation with cultural heritage in the city of Nuenen NL, the place where Van Gogh lived in 1883.

This is the second Smart Highway Project which are interactive and sustainable roads of tomorrow by designer Daan Roosegaarde and Heijmans Infrastructure. The goal is to make smart roads by using light, energy and road signs that interact with the traffic situation.”
