Wim Poppinga, 2002

De Vijver, Kikkerbeetlaan 47, Den Haag

Totally in tune with the special vision of the school's architect Marlies Rohmer (e.g. the roof of the building also functions as a basketball court), the artist Wim Poppinga came up with a flexible design for the outer schoolyard. He designed a rolling terrain covered in pitch black asphalt, which stretches from the school building itself to the houses on the opposite side of the street. It is a perfect place for rollerskating and skateboarding. A long wooden bench functions as the borderline between the schoolyard and the street. Unfortunately, because of vandalism, there are plans for the near future to close off this open schoolyard with a steel fence.
