Landmark architecture on the Kop van Zuid
Mar 2021
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.

Great ideas

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.

Cool building!
May 2018 • Solo
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!

funny tall building with green dots and a pole preventing it from toppling over
Aug 2017 • Couples
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.

Another example of Rotterdam's modern architecture
Oct 2016 • Couples
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!

A Leaning Building
Jun 2017 • Couples
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

Just a tall building
Jun 2016 • Solo
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.

This landmark building will become even more important
Apr 2016 • Couples
Just this week it was announced that KPN, the largest Dutch telecom provider will move its headquarters from The Hague to this landmark building on the Wilhelminapier. The building is one of the most striking buildings in the redevelopment project "Kop van Zuid", where in a couple of decades a disused harbor area on the south bank of the river Meuse, was transformed to the most futuristic quarter of the Netherlands. The KPN Telecom Building is about 100 meter tall and was designed by the famous architect Renzo Piano. Famous is the light show on the facade of the building.
