Between all the huge numbers photogenic old medieval alleys in Amsterdam, the Wibautstraat is a respite in terms of scale, pace and metropolitan appearance. But exactly this scale and appearance seem to scare the Amsterdam inhabitants that keep on mentioning the Wibautstraat as the most ugly street in their city. Anyway… to refresh the grey and modernistic image of the street a bit, colorful units made out of building containers and old street furniture have been placed. They function as temporary resting islands within the ever running public space. The units are places in the context of the Wibaut aan de Amstel project, and although the meaning of this project is not totally within my scope, I consider the small colorful sitting units as contributions to a brighter looking Wibautstraat.
