The Whale is one of the three meteorites that mark the area. Within the same footprint as a 'Berlage block' (50 x 100 m) in Amsterdam-Zuid, a programme twice as large had to be realised, with an optimum amount of sunlight and a maximum vista for all the houses. The line of the roof corresponds to the position of the sun.
