There are plans for a new skyscraper in Rotterdam. Big deal? No, but among both Nimby's and forummers there is a bit of a discussion whether this tower is :drool: or :puke:

Soo, lets us know and you have our eternal gratitude ;)

HEIGHT: 164,75m (functional height)
FLOORS: 45
UC: 2006 - 2008
ARCHITECT: Diederik Dam (Dam en Partners Architecten)

^^ these images show the setting of the tower


Fire away I'd say!

Dutch forummers are excluded to give their opinion about the tower in this topic for obvious reasons. After all 'we' are all biased :)
Nimby's are not?

Not only that. The vertikal lines should be more discreet, so that one can still recognise the single windows from the distance.

I don't like the parking garage in the lower part of the tower. And the tower is to massive in my opinion. I think the tower should be more slender and a little bit higher. Like this photoshop from our Dutch forummer PIE:

It's not :puke:, but I do think it's boxy, uninventive and quite boring. This may be modern now, but, in my opinion, in 25 years it will very probably be the somewhat run-down eysore of the city, and a target for nimbys. I'm no nimby, and I'd take this over some nimby lowrise-huggin' faceless midrise any day, but if I was the developer, I'd ask for a new and more graceful design. The little black building reminds me of a PS2... :), the large one is too sharp and uncompromizing, like it's not welcoming.... I'm not an architect, and I can't tell you it won't work, but (and I'm sorry to be such a hater), I think it will attrack more haters than lovers from the average joes in the end.
