The Tschumipavilion in Groningen, designed by Bernard Tschumi, has been build as part of the event "What a Wonderful World" in 1990 and has since then housed many art manifestations.

R.D.E. (Ootje) Oxenaar (1929-2017)

http://www.holeinthedyke.com/images/hitd-news/ox-402.jpg http://www.holeinthedyke.com/images/hitd-news/ox2-402.jpg
Famous Dutch designer Ootje Oxenaar passed away. Oxenaar studied visual arts at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. From 1966 until 1985 he worked for the Nederlandsche Bank, where he designed two series of well known gulden-banknotes in bright colors.
Using themes like the Dutch landscape, birds, sunflowers and a lighthouse (quite revolutionary in those days) he succeeded in creating beautiful and colorfull banknotes that still make it hard for the Dutch to get used to the Euro. He was the Director of Art and Design, Post and Telecommunications of The Netherlands.
