studioroosegaarde.net - Smart Highways are interactive and sustainable roads of tomorrow by designer Daan Roosegaarde and Heijmans Infrastructure.
The first Smart Highway is Glowing Lines which are lines that charge at day-time, and glow at night for eight hours. Here the landscape becomes energy-neutral and a poetic experience. The first pilot of Glowing Lines has been realised at N329 in Oss (NL) and will be further launched international.
New designs include ‘Dynamic Paint’, ‘Interactive Light’, ‘Induction Priority Lane’ and ‘Road Printer’. The goal is to make roads which are more sustainable and interactive by using light, energy and road signs that automatically adapt to the traffic situation.
The collaboration between Roosegaarde and Heijmans is a true example of innovative industries. The design and interactivity from Studio Roosegaarde and the craftsmanship of Heijmans are fused into one common goal: innovation of the Dutch landscape.
Smart Highway has been awarded with a Dutch Design Award, Accenture Innovation Award, and is winner of the INDEX Award 2013.
