Construction of the Euromast bas relief.


The Euromast observation tower was designed by Hugh Maaskant and built in 1958-1960 to a height of 101 meters. A further 85 meters were added in 1970 so that it would remain the tallest built structure in Rotterdam. Originally intended for the Floriade event in 1960 in Rotterdam, it has since come to symbolize the spirit of post World War II reconstruction.
