More than half of the Netherlands lies below sea level. The Delta Works were built to keep everyone safe and to prevent a recurrence of the 1953 flood disaster. You can relive history at Deltapark Neeltje Jans: from the flood disaster to the construction of the Delta Works. Exhibitions, films and a visit to the storm surge barrier itself will give you an impression of the stupendous power of water. People come to view the storm surge barrier from as far away as America.

Netherlands Cubic Houses in Rotterdam. Architect Piet Blom turned a parallelepiped an angle of 45 degrees and put a hexagonal pylon at an angle along with it. The houses have three floors. The entrance is on the ground floor, a guest room with a kitchen is on the second floor and two bedrooms and a bathroom are on the third floor. A small garden is sometimes placed on the upper floor.
