The Rotterdam Museum

prijswon competition

An icon for the city

The Rotterdam Museum is in a fascinating location, which offers a tension between past, present and future. The building has an extraordinary character and forms part of the city. Escalators in the middle of the shopping street lead to the museum entrance on the roof where a panorama square provides a beautiful view over the city. From here a cinematic route begins down the facade. The view of contemporary Rotterdam compliments the historically orientated collections of the museum.
