Webcam of the Rode Pieper:

The roof looks it's made of copper? Atleast it seems to get flat which is nice.

It looks great but why made it from copper when it will turn green. Think of the statue of liberty for example, or 40 Wall Street (aka Trump building, how original...).

I went to Amsterdam in 2003 and 2004.

Did they demolish the docks (boat station) next to Amsterdam centraal station???

I love Amsterdam. If I have the opportunity to work there I won't miss it!!

RIJKSMUSEUM AMSTERDAM

A radical operation
The Rijksmuseum is one of the ten principal museums in the world. Widely acclaimed for its collection of paintings from the Golden Age, the Rijksmuseum has far more to offer: it is a museum of art and history without equal, with five different collections under a single roof – painting, sculpture and decorative arts, drawings, prints and photographs, Asiatic art, and Dutch history.

Since 1885, the collection has been housed in architect Pierre Cuypers’ imposing building on the Museumplein square, right in the heart of Amsterdam. The renovation is one of the most radical operations the Rijksmuseum has ever had to undergo, and there are a great many reasons why it is necessary. The cost of the combined rebuilding, renovation and renewal of the Rijksmuseum will amount to EUR 272 million.

passage.

The Spanish architects Antonio Cruz and Antonio Ortiz have succeeded in carrying out their brief to make the Rijksmuseum suitable to receive millions of visitors and to modernise it to meet 21st-century standards. They were also to bring back the clarity of the original design by P.J.H. Cuypers, increase the visibility of the collections and make the museum attractive to a wide audience. The result in 2008 will be a transparent, open museum.

The choices made by the government and the Rijksmuseum in the commissioning process have been incorporated into a new financial framework.

This takes into account the costs of the underground square (20 million euro), the tunnel connections and the Asian pavilion (7.5 million euro all together), and incorporates the costs of moving (3 million euro). Up to 2010 a total amount of 272 million euro is involved. This also includes the construction of the new Workshop Building, the organisation of new storage space in Lelystad, the temporary accommodation of the collection and staff until 2008 and the cancellation of current leases. The total amount of 272 million euro is entirely covered within the financial framework laid down for The New Rijksmuseum.

This picture gives a nice overview of the land reclamation and starting construction of the new bus station North (to the right) of the existing central station. The black lines in the picture are cables from a foreground crane of the Oosterdokseiland project:

Yes it is. Beneath the parkinglot at the bottom left cornor of the picture there's a unused subwaytunnel which will be used by the Chocolote factory and one of the old buildings on the right side will be used as main entrance.
