Designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, this unique building located on the banks of Rotterdam's Maas River has one side that leans as much as the Tower of Pisa.

This tall building next to the Erasmus Bridge is from KPN, the largest and oldest Dutch telecom provider (used to be state owned). I like the pole that seems to be preventing the tall building from toppling over. Green is the brand color of KPN.

This building, hosting the nHow Hotel, is situated right next to "De Rotterdam", another architectural masterpiece of Rotterdam. Be sure to enjoy the sunlight reflections and the sunset on a summer evening: the view to the Erasmus Bridge is quite stunning!

There are some tall buildings in this area and this building is an eye-catcher of the architecture in the "Kop van Zuid" because of the leaning form with its support pillar

The view from different floors is pretty amazing - on a clear day you can see The Hague. Zoetermeer and beyond. Not accessible to the public but you can visited the Nhow hotel as well and head for the bar !

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.
