Amsterdam was the only place I have been to that makes an attempt to disguise any building works that are in progress (and there is a LOT of renovation going on!")

This was one example of a creative way of making a messy building site look pleasing to onlookers ? and more to the point, the suffering neighbours!

Other examples I saw were huge advertising pictures spanning the whole front of a building top to bottom, one was of a beautiful beach scene (promoting Turkey!), a bright pink mesh cover, and even a cheerful bright yellow covered front of a building!

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
