|World's first runway for extraterrestrial cultures.|
The two roundabouts connecting the municipality Houten with the A27 highway and their connecting road have been transformed into a runway for extraterrestrial cultures. The one roundabout is a UFO landing platform, a lighted smooth tar plate decorated with a giant letter U. On the other roundabout a control tower, which signals in two light colours whether safe landing is possible or not. On the 500 metre long road between the roundabouts, blue sunken floor lights, as seen at airports. The runway is a serious attempt to offer extraterrestrial cultures a possibility to land. It 's a monument for hope and expectation.
