Passing through Amsterdam Central Station …
Many commuters did not realize that this is artwork in disguise for a temporary situation.
This is Impulse – a block of faceted triangles pulsating, hiding a construction underneath. A building site in progress to connect this station hall and the metro station located across.
When it is ready, Cuyperstrap (translation: Cuypers Stairs) will be such an ease for all passengers to make the transfer down the new stairs and escalators to get to the Metro lines without having to dash outside to catch the connection.
Cuyperstrap is expected to be ready by spring 2020.
Last news in July 2020. It is finished!
