I have a fascination for tunnels. Driving through a tunnel, I feel as if I’m in a sci-fi movie and my vessel has just been launched into space from the mothership. I love the slated concrete, the symmetry and the never-ending perspective. It’s pleasing to the eye. The lighting, the shape and the place it takes you to makes each tunnel unique. A tunnel is an essential artery in the flow of traffic, an undervalued piece of engineering and design.
Please meet Holland’s finest.
