Skyline on the Scheldt: Antwerpolis – architecture in Antwerp
Antwerp. Belgium. Small Hutzel houses, narrow and dreamy streets, contemplative and modest? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! Antwerp has a long tradition of building high-rise buildings. The first skyscraper in Europe was built here. It was a bit quiet around the city on the Scheldt for a long time, but for a few years it has been going up high again. Our foray through Antwerp with old and new extraordinary towers of the diamond city.

With the restructuring of the old port area of Eilandje north of the historic center, Antwerp is currently experiencing a huge urban expansion. In the middle of the old docks around Bonapartedok, Willemdok and Kattendijkdok. Where a few years ago goods were unloaded and cruise ships anchored, a whole series of challenging projects are being built along the docks. This includes cultural buildings, new residential and commercial buildings and the reconstruction of old port buildings, as well as attractive green spaces. Park Spoor Nord by the Italian Secchi-Vigano studio is already one of the most popular public spaces in the city. Zaha Hadid's spectacular Port House will be completed shortly. Then a multi-faceted shimmer structure that can be seen from afar breaks through the roof of the former harbor fire brigade. But it is also worth taking a look back, because the history of the tower structures is a long one in the Scheldt city.
The reinvention of the city began in 2011 with the opening of the MAS (Museum aan de Stroom). The new, widely visible power center was built in the historic port. The Dutch office Neutelings Riedijk Architecten created not only a suitable landmark for the new city history museum of Antwerp, but also an incomparable spatial experience - a walk through the memory and the painful history of the city. Ten cubatures, wrapped in red Indian sandstone, are stacked over 60 meters. The shape of the monolith refers to the historic warehouses of the docks. The Oosterhuis, the large trading house of the Hanseatic merchants, stood in the same place for centuries.
