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)

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.
