Appreciation towards NEXT architects for providing the following description:


A monument to represent the blossoming and flourishing of the city of Tilburg, a textielgroeimonument’ (textile growth monument), realized at the Textielmuseum Tilburg in 2009 as part of the celebration of the 200h anniversary of the city.

Since the Mommerscomplex that accommodates the textile museum is metaphorically speaking a living monument, would it perhaps be possible to create a growing monument that is literally built up from living matter? The new volume can be read as an addition to the industrial complex: a shape that brings to mind the high factory buildings; a reprise of the building structure of the textile museum.

The overgrowth lends to the monument the dynamics of nature. It literally grows, and this ensures that always looks alive. It is not a massive volume but a transparent, open structure.

A platform connects the interior space with the courtyard. It provides a possible connection to the monument and a starting point in the open space around the complex. It facilitates encounters anoexchanges and in doing so it adopts the part of accelerator in the creative public domain that is currently being developed in Goirkestraat. And so as the volume turns the past into a visible experience in the present, the platform is the first step towards the future.
