Grindbakken by Rotor

Rotor is a group of people with common interest in the material flows in industry and construction. It was founded in 2005 in Belgium.

The Grindbakken pits were used to transfer sand and gravel between ships and lorries. It is located in Ghent, Belgium.
The walls were painted white, but Rotor selected 36 areas for protection from the paintwork. Some of the areas display colourful graffiti, while others show markings that reveal the industrial history of the pits.

A project by Tristan Boniver, Renaud Haerlingen, Lionel Billiet, Maarten Gielen. The site freshly renovated by: Sarah Melsens and Roberta Gigante with the support of AG SOB.

Photographs are by Rotor, Eric Mairiaux and Johnny Umans
