Creative Crosswalks Rotterdam

20 May 2017 / By Jorn
In 2017, we were asked by the municipality of Rotterdam to make an intervention in one of the city’s busiest intersections. We decided to turn it into a work of art. In collaboration with Opperclaes, a local art collective, a large artwork was installed at the intersection. The result is a colorful piece connecting the different parts of the intersection, only using elements normally used by road workers. What this tactical urbanism intervention does most is dignifying and celebrating the pedestrian: “Stand Straight, Walk Proud.”
