A few years ago I had a conversation with a staff member from Uytenhaak Architects about concealed texts in Amsterdam, relating to my own work ‘stoned forever’, which is integrated in brickwork in the Olympic Quarter. He said that there is a text in Morse code incorporated into the Droogbak (1989), a residential building by Uytenhaak: ‘Deze muur staat er niet’ (‘This wall isn’t here’). It is located close to the railway line. Rudy Uytenhaak later told me that this was his last opportunity to protest against the acoustic fence that had to be constructed for bureaucratic reasons.
Ever wondered what "patatje oorlog" (War Fries) would taste like if it were ice cream? Me neither, but ice cream store Ludo & Hedo did and offered an answer to this question anyway, and it tasted much better than I could ever have imagined. The conceptual founder, Ola Lanko, composes new combinations from seasonal ingredients every so many weeks.
Each flavour has a dreamy, poetic name and compose a wide variety together, that ranges from plain vanilla (Sweet Survivor) to gorgonzola with pear and walnut (Blue Marble), or even burned milk (In Love).
A must-try for Dare Devils and Sicilian Rebels.
