The iconic Van Nelle factory is inextricably linked to Rotterdam’s dynamic world port. This modernist masterpiece on the bank of the Schie Canal was originally built for the processing and packaging of coffee, tea and tobacco. The neon sign on the roof still testifies to this past.
After careful redevelopment, the Van Nelle Factory is now used by the creative industry and as an event venue. Meanwhile, this grand ‘poem in steel and glass’ has won a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List and is partially accessible to the public.
This handy guide gives a clear explanation of details of the Van Nelle factory. It is a book for everyone who wants to know more about its origin and design and wants to discover its beauty.
Prof Dr Marieke Kuipers is associated with Delft University of Technology and with the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands and is an international expert in the field of twentieth-century monuments.
