Photographer's Note

In the University neighbourhood De Uithof in Utrecht there have been some drastic changes the past few years, architecture is one of them.

Amongst new, bigger, better and more unique schoolbuildings and a library, they started to create students housing in this area as well - just like a HUGE campus. These 'houses' were I believe the first ones in this area and are made out of sea containers put together in a colourful bunch. Every container is 1 room with a small kitchen, bed/living and shower/toilet - but it's something!
After these containers (you may find likewise solutions to the housing-problem in Dutch student cities Delft and Amsterdam as well), they started to build real buildings that fit the area better, so now the area is starting to look like a great big architectural battle with unique buildings all over.

This view I just like because of th many colours and the busy, cosy atmosphere.

Edit: in this workshop you can see these 'houses' from the side - obviously it looks more like a local Lego-ghetto... :)
