“Amsterdam is one of those places I fell in love with before I ever visited. Architect Aldo van Eyck is the primary reason behind this. WWII left the city devastated with bomb-demolished buildings on many blocks, and the newly brandished professional’s first assignment was to begin designing neighborhood playgrounds…”
On another note: I went to the lake on a few Sundays ago (the beach on the lake). There is a magnificent playground there, of the likes you would probably never find in the US for fear of lawsuits (I could talk about this issue at length at another time).
