EMC / Duna
Europe, Netherlands, Zuid Holland, Rotterdam EMC, Central atrium Duna (Jaume Plensa), Piano player (slightly cut)
Shown here is the atrium of the new EMC (Erasmus Medical Centre) designed by EMG - project architect Willemineke Hammer. it's a vast and almost desorienting space which is partly dominated by the enormous 'Duna' sculpture (Jaume Plensa). It's fascinating how it changes its surroundings - like many of his enormous statues seem to do.
In the BG is the old hospital (1962, Rotterdam functionalism, Viergever and Den Hollander which in due course will be demolished.
More about the new hospital is here.
