Traverse Hilversum*

Hilversum Media Park, Hilversum, Nederland

At the Media Park, the heart of Dutch broadcasting, a bold structure provides uninhibited access to the railway network. The traverse offers not only a direct connection for train commuters from the station to the Media Park, but also extends to the residential suburb behind it.

Essentially, the traverse is no more than a connection linking the shortest route from A to B, but here a lot has been done to make it a meaningful experience. A momentary transition for pedestrians and cyclists, a combination of functionality and beauty.
