New horizons, crossing oceans, pushing back frontiers

The convent will be Horizon building. Horizons relate to discoveries because horizons have always inflamed people’s curiosity. They created a longing to go there and the fact that there are always new horizons kept and keep people going. They are specially related to seas and oceans, because that is where you see the horizons at their best.

Today’s H-building will be Ocean building. Since the earth’s surface consists for 65% of seas and oceans, oceans have always been one of the big challenges for explorers. Many explorers were therefor captains of ships. They were curious and had courage because sailing the seven oceans was tricky business that could bring enormous awards, but you had to have it to take calculated risks to go there in the first place.

Horizons and oceans are frontiers as well. By discovering the world you challenge those frontiers and push them back. The new name of the N-building will be Frontier building. Frontiers represent where you have gone so far and at the same time tell us that there is another world to be discovered at the other side. Frontiers are there to be pushed back, to be shifted. Explorers consider the frontier a challenge to go further.
