In my time with the district of North I had the opportunity to save two former BP Gas stations from demolition. They both underwent some reconstruction, according to a plan by Amsterdam based but French born architect Sophie Valla. Today they simply are the yellow and the pink tanker situated on these weird spots high up from the motorway.

The yellow tanker is in use by Hotmammahot, a creative collective.

The pink tanker is simply called “De Roze Tanker” and hosts concerts, meals, a rollerskating rink and other activities.
