The A’DAM Tower is a nearly one hundred meter high tower on the IJ bank in Amsterdam-Noord. The tower was designed in 1966 by the Dutch architect Arthur Staal on behalf of Royal Shell. The building was, therefore, better known by many Amsterdam locals as “Shell Tower”.  In 2016, the tower was renamed as A’DAM Toren (Tower) after a two-year renovation.
In 2015, the ‘crown’ of the building was covered with Cocoon to protect it against the erratic Dutch weather conditions.
