This is my second panorama of Roombeek, Enschede to this WWP-project. Roombeek is a reconstructed area that had been destroyed by an explosion at a firework warehouse in May 2000. (see also my contribution for Sustenance 2007). Because this area means a lot to me I shoot many panoramas of the reconstruction. Besides 2008 has been an important year for the town of Enschede.

The reconstruction of ‘Roombeek’ is almost finished.This panorama is made on top of the remaining foundations of the exploded fireworks warehouse. These remaining foundations are kept as a kind of a monument.

To get an idea of the disaster that took place in May 2000, there are some impressive movies at YouTube: a tribute dedicated to the victims of this disaster: YouTube-Movie-01 and a reconstruction made by Discovery Channel: YouTube-Movie-02

To get an impression of the whole reconstructed area I made a VirtualTour: VT-Roombeek
