The word Amsterdam is proudly emblazoned in the glass-tiled roof of the new Bus Station at the rear of the Central Station.
The domed roof is made of 4,500 outrageous orange and glorious gold glass panels, all fitted onto a steel roof frame. Each panel measures between one and three metres square and the giant letters are 22 metres tall.

A colourful note: this red-orange shade is known as outrageous orange in Crayola world since 1990. In this year, the crayon producers decided to introduce more fluroescent colours to theri range and renamed their original fluroescent crayons at the same time. Thus, Ultra Orange Fluorescent (born 1972) took on the more exciting name of Outrageous Orange.
