Both Rotterdam and Amsterdam have a Beursplein (Stock Exchange Square). In both cases, this square is located very centrally in the city and is characterized by busy traffic. Wim Gijzen films both locations, starting both shots with the respective street signs. Are names decisive for spaces? Do they define a space?
