Rotterdam, Netherlands

The City Hall of Rotterdam, The Netherlands was built in 1920 as the winner of a contest in 1912. The City Hall was built to replace the older, 16th century City Hall that had become too small.

The City Hall is one of the few buildings that survived the bombing of Rotterdam in World War II (1940), which fully destroyed the city center. Amazingly, the City Hall survived completely undamaged. The old City Hall however, did not and was lost in the fires along with hundreds of other historical buildings.
The building retains it's function as the primary City Hall up to this day, however some extensions (the Municipal Buildings) have been made in the 1950's and 1980's. The portion built in the 1980's is going to be replaced by a new Municipal Building designed by Rem Koolhaas.

The City Hall, built in 1920, front view.

Design drawing by architect H. Evers, 1911 for the 1912 contest.

Dome (approx. 30m high) and interior of the main hall with the coat of arms, publicly accessible through the front entrance.

Courtyard in the center of the building, accessible from the side and the hall.


Old City Hall in the 17th century, destroyed in WWII.
