003: Chassé Park
Late nineteenth century, a large barracks complex was built on this 13-hectare area. About two decades ago, the so-called Chassékazerne was demolished. A new neighborhood was designed by architect Rem Koolhaas. The picture shows part of the Chassé Park apartment complex. When I was a teenager, I had cycled along this terrain, on the way to my highschool. Late 2004, when I left the Netherlands, this building wasn’t constructed yet. When I visited Breda in 2010, I came by this building. Despite the large green areas around it, it appears a bit boring and a bit too modern to me.
