Boijmans -
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is one of the oldest museums in the Netherlands. In 1849 the lawyer Boijmans left his art collection to the city of Rotterdam. With the acquisition of the Van Beuningen collection in 1958 the museum got the second part of its name. The museum houses a unique collection of paintings, sculptures and everyday objects. The collection of prints and drawings is one of the best in the world. The museum also organises a diverse programme of spectacular temporary exhibitions throughout the year.
NAI -
In his design for the NAI, Jo Coenen housed the various functions of the institute in different parts of the building, all of which are in perfect harmony. The resulting ensemble blends in with its environment and establishes a relationship with the surrounding buildings.  http://en.nai.nl/about_the_nai/nai_building/item/_pid/kolom2-1/_rp_kolom2-1_elementId/1_146457




14 mai 1940 : Bombardement de Rotterdam : la ville est bombardée par la Luftwaffe qui détruit totalement le centre-ville. Plus de 800 personnes sont tuées et 80 000 Rotterdamois sont sans abri. Comme pour Le Havre, ce bombardement est souvent donné comme explication à la modernité du port et de la ville qui ont dû être entièrement reconstruits après la Seconde Guerre mondiale.
