A tropical garden in the making in the courtyard of the Student Experience building

Gray and windy day with a bit of rain. Exactly a year ago since reporting on that the first groundwork had started at the field. The building now looks complete, on the outside it’s all covered with a white, bubbly fascade. The fence has been taken down along the north and east side, while there still seems to be some construction work by the canal on the south side. There’s a big opening in the building towards Antonio Vivaldistraat, entering through you reach a kind of courtyard where a tropical garden is in the making. There’s also a little bus offering smoothies and raw food. People (mostly young students) are going in and out of the building, some seem busy with moving in. Entering the reception a man approaches me and asks if I’m looking for something, he seems to recognize me and asks if I’ve been walking around this area before, I reply yes.
