Luxor Theatre

It is typical of Rotterdam, that the 'impossible’ ambition of the Kop van Zuid - nothing less than changing the 'wrong side’ of the city into the 'right side’ - will happen despite the difficult conditions.

The new Government Building/Court (in our plan not maximally denied) is already a massive presence and the new bridge by Van Berkel makes the crossing of the river an exciting event. Conceptually the delicate trapeze of Van Berkel is simply eclipsed by the enormous Government Building. The new Luxor must respond to the initiatives taken by the Block and the Bridge - the heavy and the light - and if possible, achieve a synthesis between the two.
