Fairground in the Landscape

Fascinated by funfairs and their nomadic nature, Faiz Bin Zohri proposes to incorporate travel into the actual fairground experience. ‘The attractions are usually all jumbled together in one place. Spreading them out, each can be appreciated on its own,’ he explains. For Fairground in the Landscape, he drew up plans for a fun fair along 13 kilometres of train track between the Dutch cities of Eindhoven and Helmond, punctuated by six stations. Each stop is a gateway to a different world, with its own ambience. In this way, travelling from one city to the next becomes an action-packed attraction in itself.
