Stad zonder hoogtevrees / City Without Fear of Heights
De ontwikkeling van een Europese hoogbouw typologie / The Development of a European High Rise Typology
Nai010 Publishers, 2023
High-rise is in Rotterdam’s DNA. As early as 1898 the city attracted attention with “Het Witte Huis”, which at 43 metres was considered Europe’s tallest office building at the time. Now, 125 years later, new insights and techniques have allowed the highest point of the Rotterdam skyline to run to more than 200 metres. ‘City Without Fear of Heights’ takes stock of the past decades of high-rise construction and describes main lessons and learning points.
