Erasmus University College (EUC)

In Rotterdam, the Erasmus University College (EUC) was put into use. The former central library at the Nieuwmarkt is restored by (designed by) Erick van Egeraat and transformed into a faculty building. Hidden elements are visible again and the atrium was fitted with a glass roof and walls.

Erick van Egeraat restored the building according to the principles of the UNESCO Venice Charter. The original decorations, sculptures and other elements that were hidden behind plaster walls and suspended ceilings have been restored to its former glory.
