  NeMo museum in Amsterdam
by codrutz

Again I found in Amsterdam the name of the little clown fish - NEMO :) As well as the Disney's movie, the Nemo museum is designed for children aged 4-16 (as well as for their parents) fascinated by science and technology. I admit I didn't go inside but instead I have admired the original shape of the massive building from the cruise boat.

The NeMo (National Center for Science and Technology) boat-like green building was designed by Renzo Piano, not other than the one who designed the Centre Pompidou in Paris (hosting the Museum of Modern Art and a vast library).

The exterior is covered with copper and in time it took the green color. The roof of the building is sloped and uses as a roof terrace. There are stairways on the sides that leads people to the terrace, which provides a view of both Amsterdam and the water of the IJ.
