Kunsthal Rotterdam is one of the icons of modern architecture and is visited every year by large numbers of architecture lovers from all over the world.
The world-famous architect Rem Koolhaas designed the Kunsthal in 1988-1989 in conjunction with the project architect Fuminori Hoshino from the Rotterdam firm of architects OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture). The work immediately attracted wide international attention for such features as its innovative use of material, the position of the entrance, and the steep ramps. Kunsthal Rotterdam was opened in 1992. Since then, the Kunsthal has put culture in the widest sense of the word on show, from elitist to popular. There are always a number of exhibitions to see, both large and small-scale, from old masters to contemporary art, from innovative design to engaging photography. The Kunsthal is located next to the Erasmus Medical Center, on the edge of the attractive Museumpark in the Museumkwartier district. It is a five-minute walk from Leuvehaven metro station and trams 7 and 8 stop nearby.
