Ben van Berkel:

“With the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam, at the beginning people thought it was too big and it was too dominant in the city. Nobody thought it was going to be such an important link to the South part of Rotterdam. It took only three years and then it became suddenly the symbol of the city. I never expected that. Now even people have tattoos of the bridge!”
