Bout in collaboration with students from various vocational and vocational courses in Rotterdam. Students from the Albeda Colleague, The Hague University of Applied Sciences, TH Rijswijk and the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences were responsible for welding and assembling the image. The students of the colleges took the calculations on themselves. The project was intended to allow students of different levels to work together and to inspire each other to create something that they can be proud of.
