Kunsthal

This building houses temporary exhibitions on art, architecture and design and non-European cultures. The architect, Rem Koolhaas, has ingeniously put to use the difference in level between the Museumpark and the dike. Note the piece by Henk Visch on the roof: it represents a camel and its driver, a symbol of the transient and itinerant nature of the exhibitions.

Our reports

Netherlands: Rotterdam by boat and by bike

Around 90% of the town was destroyed by the German bombing raids in 1940 which meant that Rotterdam has, in the second part of the 20th century, become a experimental site for modern architecture. It is now filled with skyscrapers. The town has received contributions from some of the greatest names in architecture from Álvaro Siza to Norman Foster and includes local talent such as Rem Koolhas.
