Uw peuk hier, klein gemak, groot plezier! Translated: Your (cigarette) butt here, little convenience, great fun! Outside the doors of a school at the Heer Bokelweg, there are several with separate text for each location.
Themeday again! This month the theme chosen was “School”! The picture I took is of my old school, the Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam located at the Heer Bokelweg, in my days De Grafische School. I’ve learned to operate a printing press, graphic design, newspaper layout and assemble and many more things. This was in the late 70s. Today the school is more about visuel design as video and photo productions, web media, software developer (apps) etc. I know, I’m getting old…
Near where I live you can find this building and area;
“ZOHO is a living and working area on the edge of the center, a 5-minute walk from Central Station. For and by makers in design, art, culture, media, tech, food, architecture and urban planning. All pioneers who want to use their craftsmanship to strengthen themselves, ZOHO and the city in an innovative way. Sandwiched between Heer Bokelweg, Hofbogen, Teilingerstraat and Noordsingel, also known as the Zomerhofkwartier, this former industrial area was struggling with vacant space. In 2013, it was decided that the area will be developed for 10 years through a gradual form of urban development; slow urbanism.”
I do like it, in a next post I will show the urban landscape in that neighborhood!
