Semi=modern architecture soaring above the town, you can't miss it. Not my favorite site, but others might like it.

It's actually pretty neat but you'll only spend 10 seconds or so looking at it and getting the picture. It's larger and more realistic than I expected so take a look if you're nearby.

Love this building! Don’t have that much with the ufo on top, I love the design of bricks and huge windows. The building has fabulous angles. Also check out the work on the flowers beds, they’ve created a ‘bees hotel’ which is great. The statue...More

This former head office building for the national Railways in the Netherlands (now owned by Prorail) is a huge brick building dating from 1920. because of it's shape it is called the 'Inkpot'. The UFO dates from 2000.

A true icon in the city centre, this Gotham style building. In fact it's the biggest brick building in the Netherlands. Inside it's just as impressive.

The interior of the building is even more interesting than the outsides. I was told 22 million bricks make up the building.

The first time I saw it Iaughed. The building is very avant garde, with this huge dominating presence, which is destroyed by this UFO sitting on the top. Its a place you can walk around, on your way to the canals.
