  • Catalogue Essay

    "With the Rotterdam building and the sixth tower, the crossing-of-shame of the new bridge became exciting, suddenly. Unintentionally, the politicians had designed a major urban experience: the building turned the weird zigzag compromise into genius. The absurd trajectory created a predictable sequence of perception-an early unfolding, an accordion movement that made the composition of 'towerslab' infinitely dynamic." (Koolhaas and Mau, S,M,L,XL, 1995)
