For the expansion of Museum De Lakenhal, the integration with the Centre for Visual Arts and the upgrading of the Lammermarkt to become the tourist entrance to the city, the municipality of Leiden has decided to organise an ideas completion. The vision of BDP and S2 architects was elected as the winner.
In this vision the area around windmill “De Valk” (The Falcon) is made into a fully-fledged museum square by creating a sloping grass field. The grass will provide room for large-scale events such as the Leiden Three October Ground Fair, underneath there is space for a car park and a supermarket, and at the edge space for restaurants, bars and boat rentals. At the high side of the sloping grass field the new city wall will rise. At the low end a glass museum shop will form the red carpet to the new museum complex.
