Photographer's Note

Displayed here is the Peperklip flanked by a number of trees and barriers as seen from the Pincoffs-bridge. It forms a transition area between the new Kop Van Zuid and the older parts of Rotterdam .
The Peperklip has the form of paperclip and was named after the former mayor of Rotterdam, Dr Bram Peper and was designed by Carel Weber.
It consists of social housing. Due to social problems and the fact that the lay out of the building left almost no space for social control it use to have a bit of a bad image. After some social and technical effort the building is fine now. But when I walked passed it on my way to the supermarket this afternoon, I couldnt help to find some symbolism in the scene displayed. And of course I was also again drawn to it by its graphism.
Montr ici est le ` Peperklip 'flanqu d'un certain nombre d'arbres et de barrires comme vu du Pincoffs-pont. Il forme un secteur de transition entre nouveau Kop Van Zuid et les pices plus anciennes de Rotterdam.
Le ` Peperklip 'a la forme de paperclip et a t baptis du nom de l'ancien maire de Rotterdam, Dr Bram Peper et a t conu par Carel Weber.
Il se compose du logement social. En raison des problmes sociaux et du fait que la prsentation du btiment l'a laisse presque naucun espace pour la commande sociale Une mauvaise image est le resultat. Aprs un certain effort social et technique le btiment est bien maintenant. Mais quand j'ai march pass lui sur mon chemin au supermarch cet aprs-midi, je ne pourrais pas aider trouver un certain symbolisme dans la scne montr.
