Along the western edge of the campus, behind Vitae, stands a large, curved, rust-coloured steel form. Some of the surfaces are covered in moss and the big steel plates have been bent in a way that makes them look flexible. The front of the artwork is open and bent forward. This piece could be described as a kind of applied art, as Walraeven (1942-2010) was commissioned by the Government Buildings Agency to ‘further shape the ventilation ducts in the outdoor areas using visual resources.’ Walraeven used stone, stainless steel and COR-TEN steel, and formed these hard materials into remarkable curves and folds.
