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, it has come to symbolize the spirit of post World War II reconstruction.
A man scavenges the streets of Rotterdam, picking up old doors and boards; materials considered worthless by others. He turns them into beautiful and spectacular works of art in his workshop, celebrating the inventiveness and perseverance of humanity as well as its frailty and failures.
