A NEW PEDESTRIAN PARK IN ROTTERDAM

Usually, when I am writting the weekly post, I show the content to my daughters. If they say WOW!, it means it is a good post.

This is a WOW post.

The Luchtsingel is a new pedestrian park that reconnects two formerly separated regions in Rotterdam and revitalizes a forgotten area. Situated in central Rotterdam, the bridge joins Central Station, Rotterdam North, and the area between Rotterdam North and Binnenrotte. Construction of the bridge started in 2012, and the final phase ended in 2014.

Designed by ZUS, the most important fact about the bridge is that it was financed with a crowdfunding campaign. The campaign sold over 8,000 boards painted in  intense yellow wich were inscribed with the supporter’s name.
