NIKON D850 (NIKON CORPORATION) - 1800 - f/1.8 - 1/100 - 85 mm

The RAI Amsterdam multifunctional parking building: a thirty-meter high building with eight parking levels that can accommodate around a thousand cars. It is located on the Amsterdam Zuidas and the A10 ring road and is an integrated part of RAI Amsterdam. A special feature of the building is that the first floor can also be used as a flexible conference room. At times when the RAI has no additional parking requirement, the garage will act as a public parking facility. Benthem Crouwel Architects has been the supervisor of the entire RAI since 1989. After the Amtrium and the Elicium, the parking building is the third building that they have designed at the RAI complex.

The building is characterised by a sleek, rectangular shape with two striking spirals on the south side, the so-called "wokkels". One spiral to enter the parking garage and another spiral to leave it. Because of this separate supply and removal of traffic, parking can be handled quickly and efficiently, an important wish of the RAI. The spirals are constructed from prefab concrete elements that, stacking together form the entrance and exit to the parking floors. They are iconic for the building, clearly visible from the A10 ring road, and in the evening blue LED lines emphasise their elegant shape.

Kwam deze al weer wat oudere foto tegen. Was er meteen van de indruk. Schitterend in kleur en compositie!

Waarom in het Engels en niet in onze eigen prachtige taal?
