Mooie!

Ik had laatst trouwens via google earth gecheckt. Wanneer je vanuit Scheveningen
(da Vinci) kijkt liggen de skyline van Den Haag en Rotterdam precies op een lijn.
Ziet er indrukwekkend uit lijkt me. Iemand foto's perhaps?

Check pictures posted by Jeromeo and you will see the The Hague skyline with in the back the Rotterdam skyline. I think they are taken from the building you are talking about

Retro shapes and materials ( like bricks ) work well on these towers and they blend well with the skyline - one that proves a medium-sized city whith nothing like a supertall can have an impressive and original skyline - so there's nothing wrong whith what you see loking up from street level; the problem is what you see AT streetlevel, looking right in front of you... bland facades whith repetitive patterns and, yes, bricks everywhere...
the "so seeerious" a few posts back realy said the least about it...
Feels like someone in black and white from a gloomy 50's movie is going to turn the next corner!
Anyway, this thread makes you feel like coming and checking by yourself

They will both be government buildings, I think they have the perfect design for that.

Since this is clearly topped out, I changed the thread title to T/O.

When all ice caps are melted these are our little islands.

Construction of these towers started before the crisis. If the government had to decide today to start the construction, it would probably not have happened.

Yes, the red brick building looks slightly like the Berliner Kollhoff-tower, as already has been pointed out.

What a surprise, having Kollhoff as the architect here as well.

I really like this project, but I don't think it's the better Potsdamer Platz. The latter offers far more diversity, urbanity and space for live/liness. Kollhoff should develop this style further, build more such buildings all across the globe. I'd love to see the revival of postmodernism in this very decent and qualitative way that resembles Art Déco. Gorgeous.

Yup it has Kollhoff written all over it Not a bad thing since it seems to fit the
surrounding buildings quite well. The Potsdamer tower looks good to, seen it in person
once, nice area there...

impresive skyline. with these towers and the new babylon complex this wil be the best skyline in netherlands. these developments should be a example for other dutch cities. i hope there will be more towers developed in the next years, especialy steel and glass towers like new babylon. everyone loves this international architecture
