Following the commemoration of the bombing of Rotterdam on May 14, 1940, the NOS TV News made an item about the location of OurDomain Rotterdam Blaak. The residential tower will be located on a small strip along the embankment of the André van der Louwbrug, a ‘frayed edge’ in the heart of Rotterdam that was never built on after the bombardment. Now, 79 years later, the completion of this historically charged place is a symbolic conclusion to the devastating German attack.
Charlotte ten Dijke wants to make the reconstruction of the city visible with OurDomain: “The glass panels shine in the dark – a very clear symbol of ‘we are here again!. A building where people can meet.”
