SCULPTURE

CITY OF METTET, BELGIUM

As part of my studies in Saint-Luc de Liège, a project was proposed in association with the town of Mettet, in the Wllone region of Belgium, which wanted a round-field scultpure at the entrance to the city.

The main attraction of the city is the presence of a recognized car circuit, suitable for both motorcycles and cars.

A service road bypasses the whole circuit from outside and serves essentially the intervention cars, the rescue services as well as the journalists.

The tribunes on a natural site give a panoramic and overall view on the whole circuit."
