buildings are rare in The Netherlands. Especially
in the area where I live where every square meter
is immediately reused and civilized.
Some can be found in the harbour where
new housing projects are planned. Some lie along
the rivers ouside Rotterdam and some are situated
along along the railroad-tracks that are
swallowed by the growing city.
I found most buildings by luck or by
systematic exploration. Just drive through al the
interesting spots and look. A bicycle is ideal for this.
Sometimes you find information at the "City
Information Centre" where they publish all the new
building projects. And artist often make art in old
buildings so keep an eye on the art-projects.
Always bring a plastic bag to take a
few "archaelogical finds" home with you. I
usually collect: bits of concrete, stones, bolts and
nuts, old letters etc. Anything that sheds a light on the
history and the occupants of the building.
