The Sustainable Rotterdam


One thing to respect Rotterdam is its local government efforts to develop the city as one of sustainable cities in Europe. One of their first actions is by having 10,000 m2 (comparable to a football field) of solar panels as the roof of its train station (Rotterdam Centraal Station). And the view of the roof is quite artistic in black and white tone 🙂

  1. That’s nice that space was utilized in such a way. We are a tiny community – less than 5,000 people, and we’ve allocated free space for our solar farm. All it takes is for everyone to do their part! BTW, I love the photo! To me it’s reminiscent of an M. C. Escher print. Great job!

    • Thank you so much Rob! M. C. Escher! I never thought about that until you pointed out – perhaps that’s the train station architect’s inspiration came from..

  2. Beautiful pic, I love the lines, structure & light. Black and white strength them. I adore the newly renovated Rotterdam Central Station. It suits the city better.

    • Thank you Yoyen! The newly renovated train station has brought good atmosphere to the city..ooh, I remember those days when the station looked so old and ugly 😀
