Groot Labyr (1960) is an invitation to reimagine our living environment. The subject of the black, abstract-looking model is a labyrinthine route. In today’s world we try to get from A to B as efficiently as possible. However, entering a labyrinth means there is a chance of getting lost. But in New Babylon, ‘getting lost’ no longer exists. ‘To get lost’ no longer means ‘to go astray’, it leads instead to new paths.
