Perforated Metal Glowing Above the City of Roskilde

Perforated Metal has been featured as artwork on a Dutch building designed by architect Erick van Egeraat. The building, which has become a prominent figure across the city of Roskilde’s landscape was commissioned in 2008 and will function as a waste incinerator and power plant to the city.

Egeraat won an international competition in 2008 to design a plant that would incinerate waste by turning heat into electricity for the city and surrounding areas. The building, which is known as the incineration line, has a perforated outer layer and becomes illuminated at night as though it were on fire from the inside.

 

The plant is composed of different sized and spaced holes cut into the metal panels, light behind these panels pours through the holes at night and create different patterns of light. To maintain the feeling of wonder, the light fixtures are hidden within the building so the public can’t notice them. The building is a testament to new cutting edge technology, which is able to turn waste into re-usable energy.

The perforated facade is surrounded by ancient buildings, some of which have been standing for 1000 years, making it important for the plant to look organic along the skyline. The rich urban colour of the plant complements the surrounding historical buildings nicely, looking as though it has stood there all along. The architect refers to the plant and its surrounding historical buildings as the guardians of the city.
