The KPN headquarters is a landmark piece of architecture designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano. It was opened in 2000 and also features a lightshow by studio Dumbar. Great that a company like KPN is willing to invest in buildings like this on prominent locations like this one.

This is a really interesting building. You would think it would be about to fall over if it wasn't for that big pole sticking on one side and holding it up. Perhaps not! It is an architectural masterpiece which is why people are talking about it! Truly amazing.

It is a pretty cool building if you happen to walk by. It is located directly next to the “Nieuwe Luxor Theater” so if you are planning on visiting the theatre you’ll definitely see it. The “Erasmusbrug” is also on this location by the way.

It is a cool buidling and a lovely piece of architecture. However, it is not one of the highlights or very special.
Just a cool add-on for your visit to Rotterdam!

This build look immensely impressive. It leans as much as the Tower of Pisa and on the leaning side, has a LED installed on the windows and turn it into a giant billboard. It is also refereed to as "The Tower of Numbers"

This tall building next to the Erasmus Bridge is from KPN, the largest and oldest Dutch telecom provider (used to be state owned). I like the pole that seems to be preventing the tall building from toppling over. Green is the brand color of KPN.

This building, hosting the nHow Hotel, is situated right next to "De Rotterdam", another architectural masterpiece of Rotterdam. Be sure to enjoy the sunlight reflections and the sunset on a summer evening: the view to the Erasmus Bridge is quite stunning!

There are some tall buildings in this area and this building is an eye-catcher of the architecture in the "Kop van Zuid" because of the leaning form with its support pillar

I don't know why all that tall building in this area of Rotterdam need an separate topic.There are many of this kind,most of them with interesting architecture but they are just regular offices buildings,cannot be visited and I don't think they can be considered as touristic objectives.KPN building is just another one of them,it doesn't worth more than a 5 minutes stop.

The view from different floors is pretty amazing - on a clear day you can see The Hague. Zoetermeer and beyond.
Not accessible to the public but you can visited the Nhow hotel as well and head for the bar !

The KPN building gives an the impression that it is actually leaning, because of its angled facade. The facade is actually a giant screen advertising stuff. Worth some photos and a closer look.
