A little while ago we went to Assen. We parked near this building (apparently it's called the Abel Tasman toren- toren means tower). I have a soft spot for huge, sober/ minimalistic structures so it immediately caught my attention.
So far I've been able to find out it was built in 1977 and it was the tallest building in Assen for a while, until the Regiopolitie Drenthe building surpassed it apparently. Unfortunately I have no idea who the original architect was. (if anyone does, feel free to leave me a note)
