The Museumpark is divided into four zones: a paved zone, a romantic zone with trees and a pedestrian bridge, an asphalted city zone for events, and a well-tended orchard. The car park designed by Paul de Ruiter uses split levels and lots of glass for a light, spacious and transparent look. The water reservoir prevents flooding in the city centre during heavy rainfall.
Designed by: Rem Koolhaas, Yves Brunier (1988-
1993, 2011) / Paul de Ruiter (2005-2010)
