Back in November, sculptor Arne Quinze created an installation connecting the Flemish Parliament with the House of Representatives in Brussels, planned to remain in place for 5 years.

Quinze: "The Sequence bridges the communication gap between people and generates movement in the city.  I want to reconnect people and let them interact with each other like they did in the past on squares".  It is meant to inspire the people of Brussels to think about what goes on in the two buildings; the grand physical connection between the neighbours is meant to call attention to the importance of their collaboration.

Concrete pedestals are the basis for the sculpture, which grows piece by piece in 100% recyclable wood that can be used after demolition; even better, every tree cut down in order to build the sculpture has since been replanted.

From his 'about':
"Arne Quinze's talent lies in his ability to fuse polar extremes- passion and chaos- with controlled elegance.  He masterfully creates immaculate, urbane and polished works that are balanced with a certain contradicting tension, giving them a refined yet exuberant appearance"
