De Bijenkorf replaced in 1953 the building of Dudok from 1930, that the bombardment had damaged somewhat. However, the ‘ glass palace ‘ of Dudok after the war broken off, because it got in the way for the new orientation of the Coolsingel in the Schiedam Dijk (instead of the Schiedamse Vest).Unlike the original glass building, the new Bijenkorf a close box, to the latest insights from America, with only a strip Windows at the restaurant and offices.
