Dutch Architecture: Colonial Style Meets Post-Modernism




The IT building at the university in Nijmegen.

Office building near the train station in Nijmegen

The traditional Dutch roofs are both elegant and symmetrical.


The white "stripes" evoke a sort of Medici feel.

The banner across the top of this building says:
"God calls you...Jesus loves you"

I'm convinced there's no structural purpose for those little red boxes adorning the top of this office building.
Just a little postmod' flare.

Why didn't I think to carve nude cherubims above my front door?

The Hague - Town Hall.
Pretty impressive at night when it's all lit up. Only Holland could get away with such a flamboyant display in today's energy-concious world...after all they are the leading producers and researchers of alternative energy.
