10 Roundabouts to Spark Artistic Creativity

By Mike Spack

Design, Roundabout, traffic

I’m an engineer not an artist, but I do like the center islands of roundabouts to look good (at least not be ugly).  Art within roundabouts can be used as place makers and I don’t think they’re problematic for traffic.  Vehicles are supposed to be driving slowly in the roundabout anyway.

To get your creative juices flowing, here are 10 interesting roundabout installations I found online.

roundabout 1
1. Rond-point de Pila, Châtellerault, France
roundabout 2
2. Spitfire Island, United Kingdom
roundabout 3
3. Bend Oregon
roundabout 4
4. La Haie-Fouassiere, France
roundabout 5
5. Pine Nursery Park, Bend, Oregon
roundabout 6
6. Splott, Wales
roundabout 7
7. Riverbend Community Park, Bend, Oregon
roundabout 8
8. City of Fort Wayne, Indiana
roundabout 9
9. Bend, Oregon
roundabout 10
10. Leiden, Netherlands

Aren’t those more fun than this roundabout?
