In front of Amsterdam Noord

Work in progress

I spent three weeks in Amsterdam Noord and as I strolled through the neighborhood I noticed the facades and gardens (especially in the ‘bloemenbuurt/flower neighborhood’). This area is one of the 40 Vogelaar Neighbourhoods where former minister Ella Vogelaar put a lot of effort in. She wanted to turn these problem area’s into beautiful districts. The residents I spoke confirmed that the area has improved, although there is still regular nuisance from neighbors or loitering. With the facades I try to give Amsterdam Noord a face without showing any faces.
