Rotterdam Centraal. Building Above and Below the Ground is the Authoritative Book on Rotterdam’s New Central Station.

Rotterdam has a new central station for public transport: Rotterdam Centraal. It took many years to design and build, and in March 2014 will officially be opened. The Ingenieursbureau Rotterdam in collaboration with Team CS, the municipal engineering office, worked on the construction of the remarkable station hall, which features a roof of beaten stainless steel that stretches far over the square adjoining the station. The book Rotterdam Centraal. Building Above and Below the Ground takes the reader on a trip through the amazing world of the above and below ground construction of the complex infrastructure of Rotterdam Centraal. Moreover, it extensively highlights the crucial role that Rotterdam’s Ingenieursbureau played in its realization.

The hall and roof of Rotterdam Centraal form the tip of an enormous iceberg: beneath the station, an underground world reveals itself that extends all the way to the city centre. Architect Maarten Struijs, who works for the Ingenieursbureau, designed the new Rotterdam Centraal metro station, which in comparison with the old station offers travellers oceans of space. He also designed the bicycle stalls, the traffic tunnel beneath the Weena and the parking garage beneath the Kruisplein with connection naar de Schouwburgpleingarage.
