Heerlen Holes

Excavation starts in Nieuw Lotbroek in Heerlen. Our new design for a public space will be made together with local people. At first we will investigate the site and collect artifacts. Today we found a piece of wall of a Roman house, a 70's plastic mug, and an old metal vent. All the artifacts will be exhibited during summer, later they will be shattered and made into terrazzo.
