|The Erasmus Bridge, built between 1990-1996, has become a symbol of the city, as was intended. Like Calatrava's suspension bridge for Seville--a logo for that Spanish city, this suspension bridge has dramatic lines and a clear identity--dubbed the "swan." The bridge spans the Maas River and connects the central city of Rotterdam with the newly developed area Kop van Zuid. It is the second largest bridge in The Netherlands and is named after the Renaissance humanist (died 1536) who was born in Rotterdam.|
