PUBLICATIONS:Bouw 1994-11; Cement 1993-3; Bouwen met Staal 1993-5/6
The south side of Weena has had several buildings designed along it in front of the existing street elevation, narrowing the boulevard from 90 metres to 60. ZZ&P Architecten realized one office building for an insurance company (Stad Rotterdam Verzekeringen) forward-left of the Hilton Hotel and Brouwer & Steketee another office building in front of the Weenagebouw. This last-named consists of three semicircular glazed volumes of 15 storeys on the south side and a sleek stone elevation of 11 storeys along Weena. This slab continues as an aerial walkway constructed as a steel open-frame girder forming a gateway at the end of Lijnbaan.
