In Rotterdam CS, in the midst of it's transition into a new modern train station, the exhibition Wachten = Verlangen (trans. Waiting = Longing) takes place. On each platform a work of art can be found.
Track 14 finds the sculpture 'Modern Classic (bl**p)' placed high upon one of the remaining elevator shafts of the old station building designed by Sybold van Ravesteyn.

In the late 1940's and throughout the 1950's Van Ravesteyn designed many railway stations for the Nederlandse Spoorwegen. Rotterdam Central Station was one of the last main station buildings by Van Ravesteyn, now being demolished and replaced. Benthem Crouwel are the architects of the new CS.)
