That the construction of the Amsterdam North|South Line not only provides hindrance but also forms, as a work in progress, an attraction in itself proves the ‘Viewpoint North|South Line’ on the Rokin. First is this marked above ground by a superb sculpture designed by artist Frank Mandersloot in collaboration with Verburg Hoogendijk Architects. A huge structure of scaffolding material which therewith clearly communicates what it’s about here and in this way also presents construction work as a given with an aesthetic quality of its own. That you don’t need to camouflage this is clarified further by a descent into the meters deep pit. Admission is free and open Tuesday through Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m..
