Apollo House

On this very clear night I finally got a nice shot of the Apollo House building (1938-1939). I'm always surprised how big the building is when standing in front of it. I read now that it's also known as Oceaan Stomer (Ocean Steamer). The construction is made of a metal skeleton covered with white ceramic plates. It used to be the main office for an insurance company but since 2000 it is used by an international law firm. See how bright the moon was shining on that evening and look at the Iodestar (polestar) just above the Apollo House. Or is it Venus?
