Van Nelle in Rotterdam

July 12, 2014

Finally got to visit the Van Nelle factory building in Rotterdam, designed by architects Leendert van der Vlugt and Johannes Brinkman and completed in 1931. It’s been somewhat over-sprucely renovated in the last decade, and now houses a rather predictable assortment of new media companies, law firms, and other facets of the higher-end “creative” economy. The architecture itself left me speechless, astounded.
