Very striking image. 

 

Is this a (relatively) new architectual trend?  I don't remember seeing much like this in visits there during the 1970's early 1980's.

Thanks all. Dutch architecture has reached a high standard since quite a few years (e.g. Google "Rem Koolhaas" or "Rem Koolhaas Rotterdam"). Rotterdam is kind of a playground for modern architecture. During the World War II bombardment on Rotterdam the old city centre was mostly destroyed. The rebuild of the city took several decades and the result is a city with fascinating modern architecture, unlike any other major Dutch city. Recent development in other parts of the city has resulted in quite spectacular buildings like the threesome in the image posted by me or the high-rise building Rotterdam on the Wilhelminapier. Rotterdam is an interesting city worthy of a visit if you spent some time in Holland!

      Two images shot (handheld, shutter speed 1/8sec) with a Samyang fisheye lens of the new Delft railway station.
      The ceiling is a reference to the world-famous Delfts Blauw pottery. With some imagination it's visible in these images.
