« Het Grensschap, an association of citizens and local authorities from border regions in the municipalities of Lanaken, Riemst and Maastricht, wished to draw attention to the region’s unique landscape and history. Together with designer Hans Lemmen, Airco Project Services helped us achieve this goal by transforming this idea into 12 landmarks. We would especially like to say how much we admired the patient way, in which Airco handled the contributions from all the different parties. We are proud of what was achieved. »

The artistic concept for the landmarks was devised by Hans Lemmen. Airco was responsible for general coordination, tendering and communications.
