Netherlands - Rotterdam's Delftse Poort II building

Delftse Poort is a building complex right across the street from the Millenium Tower. It is the tallest building of Rotterdam. This is the lower part of it, called Delftse Poort II. It has 25 floors and is 93m high. The tallest one is Delftse Poort I, standing at 151m high with 41 floors. It was completed in 1992 and houses the head office of a famous Dutch company. It is the highest office building of The Netherlands. The name originated from the old name the railway station used to have. It was build by Bonnema Architects.

  1. I like this building- as your eyes view the picture from top to bottom. On top, it's a great stark contrast against the sky, and on the bottom its a busy city.
