Redevelopment of the Liniekwartier

The Liniestraat forms the external border of the Linie neighbourhood. At the request of local residents, the area wasn’t demolished but redeveloped by housing corporation Alleewonen (now Alwel), in cooperation with the residents. There is d.i.y. housing, a neighbourhood salon, and various cultural events in partnership with Electron.

Rosa Meininger

Belgian artist Dzia took inspiration from the origin of the area, a polder where many birds breed. The flamingo depicts the colourful character of the neighbourhood. Whilst applying the white ground coat, DZIA immediately got many responses from the residents. They really liked his ‘swan’. After painting the toucan he found his inspiration for the final bird. Together the three bids represent the creative, colourful and diverse feel of the neighbourhood, with a small nod to the past.
