002: Apartment complex
This apartment complex is located near the main avenue in downtown Breda. It was built about thirty years ago, as a another example of contemporary architecture. I always imagined that few people must have enjoyed the small windows and the ugly concrete walls. You tend to associate this building to one of those behind the Iron Curtain. Grey, sad, boring, in a poor state. In 2010, I was surprised to notice that this complex was in a badly maintained condition. Was this a consequence of the 2008 crisis, and would this image be more common in the future? Fortunately, this apartment complex was completely renovated at the time of my second visit to Breda in 2016.
