  Beurs - World Trade Center
by Airpunk
 
 

This new stock exchange and conference center was built after WWII, replacing a predecessor building. The first Rotterdam Beurs dates back to 1598 and has only little to do with today?s sykscraper. The eliptical tower, the best-known part of this complex, was inaugurated in 1987. It has a height of 93 meters.
The statue in the entrance is the one of Gijsbert Karel van Hogendorp. He was a famous lawyer, a conservative politician and one of the fathers of the new dutch constitution of 1815.
