Found this oldie searching for a mural. Its around the corner of my former work looking from Bickers isle to Prinsen isle and the shipyards for canal boats are all disappeared as to toxic for the eco norms of today. I think that the photo is made 15 years ago.
Designed in 1957 by architect Lau Peters for the Catholic Church as cloister and chapel for the education to priest and left by them in 1998. After years of debate the buildings will be staying as young monument and the chapel contains now on the ground floor a restaurant and above an exposition room for art. The cloister is now a breeding place for offices that have something to do with art in the city. For more reflections you can go to Weekend Reflections here.
This weekend were all kinds of plants and flowers placed in Almere City
for the promotion of a big flower show in 2022
called the Floriade
But the cost is huge ( estimate € 30.000.000,- to pay by taxpayers ) and there is a lot of opposition against it because the former 3 floriades had millions lost. ( It is a happening once in 10 years).
