Augmented Brickwork - Public Railway Passage Tilburg

The Willem II-passage is a new public space, that connects the historical inner-city of Tilburg with the redevelopment area along the railway ‘De Spoorzone’. CIVIC architects and Bright, members of The Cloud Collective, designed an award-winning sequence of urban spaces and the architecture of the railway underpass, which seamlessly tie together architecture, public space, cultural heritage and traffic space. A specially designed and produced glass brick façade creates a familiar as well as a surprisingly striking effect when cycling through the underpass.
