Amsterdam - On the bridge to NEMO

Close to the Central railway station of Amsterdam you find an immense green building that appears to be rising out of the water. 0ften it is compared to a ship.

This very remarkable construction from 1997 is the Science Center NEMO and designed by Renzo Piano, the famous Italian architect. It comprises five floors packed with scientific and technological things to do and discover.

From the bridge leading to the building, I thought I had a well framed view of it.

My recent visit of Amsterdam was marked by lots of rain, wind and cold weather. This picture was taken in the late afternoon during one of the few and brief brightenings of the sky.
