City Hall The Hague

With its 150.000 m² this building would have been one of the largest projects in recent European memory, by definition a radical break with the scale of the old city. The site has the form of a triangle, north and west façade align with the urban traffic system, to the south a pedestrian area. The building itself, in the form of a rectangle, is concentrated on the north edge, thus leaving a - sunken - triangular plaza that forms a cultural complex with the concert hall and the Netherlands Dance Theatre, and relates to the elevated plaza in front of the hotel.
