World Heritage Van Nelle Factory - Rotterdam

N 51.9236891 / E 4.4321385

The Van Nelle Factory has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2014 and has garnered praise and admiration from the very beginning. The design by Brinkman and Van der Vlugt is a classic example of the Nieuwe Bouwen, an architectural movement from the 20th century. Director Kees van der Leeuw commissioned a high-profile factory building that had to be entirely above ground to create light, air and space. And it was controversial: it was called 'a poem in steel and glass', and the famous architect and urban planner Le Corbusier called it 'Of a purity, so unconditionally pure'.
