Tom Claassen was born in the Netherlands, in Heerlen, 1964. He is well-known for his art in public space. Many people who visited Holland must have seen the elephants along the highway A6, near Almere.
I saw a town called Almere (Netherlands) on "The Secret Life of Buildings" on tv. It's the largest self-build experiment in Europe, with individuals building whatever kind of home they like on their plot of land. I can't wait to see it.
