This is the "Bijenkorf" (Beehive) a department store in The Hague. It dates from 1926 and is designed by the architect Piet Kramer in the so called " Amsterdam School style.
I have seen this building many times but mostly went for the inside to buy some clothes. This time I looked with an other eye and suddenly noticed the beauty of the building.
The skeleton is made of concrete and round the pillars are walls of waving bricks. The windows are stunning.
The details are so beautiful, look at the sculptures at the facade made by Hildo Krop
We went for the museum in The Hague because the weather here is a jojo, one day sun and the next day it is like you see in the first picture, cloudy and rainy. At the blog of scollections you have a look in the museum we went for.
