Photographer's Note

Displayed here are the facades of 4 buildings.
-The silver building with the external walkway is the SVB building, designed by Abe Bonnema
-The building with the blue side faηade is the Hogeschool InHolland building by Erick van Egeraat.
-The temporary Portacabin building with the coloured corrugated plating is also used by the Hogeschool InHolland.
-The red brick clad building in the back is the Tax collector’s and customs office by Cees Dam & Partners architects.
The buildings were erected between 1997 and 2004.

In a WS I posted a pic which offer a broader view of this piece of high density urban renewal which is part of the “De Kop van Zuid”. On this specific part of this quarter, the east side of the Rijnhaven (Rhine-docks) once three massive warehouses were located, an example of a still existing Rotterdam warehouse (veem), the St Jobs-veem in the Lloyd quarter, another former harbour area in reconstruction is here
The buildings line the Posthumalaan (formerly: Rijhaven Oost zijde) . The portacabin-building was an afterthought arisen from the need to accommodate the fast growing number of students of the Hogeschool InHolland, rather spoiling the lines of sight and the feeling of design quality of this quarter. I used it here as a framing device.

“De Kop van Zuid” is the city quarter where I live and is a very large urban restructuring project in progress which is well underway in converting the old harbor area on the South bank of the Maas (with its defunct ports, warehouses and railway heads) into a integrated living, shopping and commercial service quarter. It’s comparable with the Docklands in London and the waterfront re-developments in Barcelona and New York.

This is my entry for the Fall Scav hunt – 3.Building face. It was shot with the new Kodak DX6440 - it is a free replacement of my faithful Kodak DC-4800 that expired on one of the workbenches of the Kodak service centre. Kudos to this company, the DC-4800 was more then 3 years old & battle-scarred ;-)

PS-E2 tech: skewed, heavily cropped, saturation (master, reds, yellows) boosted/altered, USM-ed, frame added and saved for the web.
