Initially I thought that the main cities were very much spread out but thanks to Google Maps, I found out that I will be able to city hop within a few days in Netherlands. Again, as an architectural designer, of course I would love to visit Rotterdam and see the works of MVRDV, UNStudio, OMA and all those wondrous things that I admired (and still do) back when I was still in college. I always get a kick out of seeing these buildings in person especially if I studied them intensely. I still have the model of the Educatorium (by OMA/Rem Koolhaas in Utrecht, Holland) sitting on my bookshelf which I made back in my third year in college. I remember working hard to figure out how to build that model! It is, by far, the sturdiest model I have ever made because I can stand on it but it's not looking too good right now. This photo of the real thing will have to do:
I am truly looking forward to this trip despite it being so short! I'm excited to meet my old friends and new friends. Please let me know if you have any suggestions and recommendations!
