Despite some very cold days in January, there are still many foreigners coming to the Netherlands to admire Dutch contemporary architecture. The month started with a seven-hour private taxi tour for a German investor from Munich. On the January 21st and 22nd, 29 colleagues from investor Groupe Artea came to Amsterdam. On January 30th , 60 Swedish professionals from ÅF Consult came to see the newly built island IJburg and the centre of Almere, designed by Rem Koolhaas (OMA). At the beginning of February, 40 students from HAN (Hogeschool Arnhem-Nijmegen) visited the Amsterdam city centre (Scheepvaarthuis and OBA). And finally, on February 5th, 120 colleagues of the French developer OGIC came to see contemporary architecture in Rotterdam (see last picture with Winy Maas of MVRDV in the Market Hall).
