situated in the area surrounding the old hotel New York on the harbor were the America cruise ships docked, this building is used for offices and social and restaurant with underground garage. Its well worth a visit just to see the Rotterdams sky line.

We loved this walk along the Eramus Bridge, enjoying all of this iconic modern architecture! It was amazing to witness how a city can re-design itself to become a first class city for everyone to enjoy!

The KPN building gives an the impression that it is actually leaning, because of its angled facade. The facade is actually a giant screen advertising stuff. Worth some photos and a closer look.

Great view of the building, I have visited the building during an evening walk over the Erasmus bridge and the building looked amazing across the bridge.

This build look immensely impressive. It leans as much as the Tower of Pisa and on the leaning side, has a LED installed on the windows and turn it into a giant billboard. It is also refereed to as "KPN Telecom Building"

Like many buildings in Rotterdam, the KPN catches the eye for its unusual design. It appears to be playing a trick on the eyes as it leans over on itself. If you visit the Erasmus Bridge, you will see the KPN building at the south end of the bridge.
