Build the Kunsthal in LEGO® blocks! 1 November 2022 will mark the 30th birthday of Kunsthal Rotterdam. At various moments in the run up to that date, we are turning the spotlight on what makes the Kunsthal the Kunsthal. In June – Rotterdam Architecture Month – the focus is on the Kunsthal building. To celebrate the 30th anniversary, the Kunsthal is launching a limited edition construction kit for collectors and fans.
Situated in the Museumpark, Kunsthal Rotterdam is one of the icons of modern architecture and is visited by many architecture lovers from all over the world every year. The Kunsthal was designed in 1988-1989 by the world-famous architect Rem Koolhaas together with the project architect Fuminori Hoshino from the Rotterdam firm of architects OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture). The architecture immediately attracted great international attention for the use of materials, the placing of the entrance, the steep ramp and other features. The robust building contains seven different exhibition spaces, a characteristic auditorium, and a café with an ambience of its own.
Kunsthal construction kit
The limited edition construction kit is entirely designed using LEGO® blocks. You can recognise all the architectural features: the ramp, the sloping columns, the façades with their different materials, the roof garden, the dyke – even the familiar coloured seats in the Auditorium have been incorporated in the design. The kit is available in a limited edition of only 1000.
