This is definitely the most spectacular lifting bridge in the Netherlands, one of the few still in existence in this country: a masterly example of pure engineering art and skill. When the railway tunnel underneath the Maas River was completed, the De Hef bridge became superfluous, but it was preserved as a national monument.

The Italian architect allowed the surface of this office tower to lean forward as an echo of the suspension cables of Erasmus Bridge. The giant light installation on the façade consists of 900 tiled flat lamps, together forming a screen that displays various images and texts. Fun detail: the slope is nearly 6 degrees, identical to the leaning Tower of Pisa.
