Unique hexagonal skyscraper

This hexagonal tower, a corporate headquarters building in the central city, has twenty floors and is 88 metres tall. The master plan of this area by Robert Krier (in cooperation with Sjoerd Soeters) determined the color and materials. This master plan extended the central city into an area that had been bombed during World War II. A number of architects collaborated in this development.
