Rotterdam is collecting new iconic architecture. The city has gained a few legendary projects in a short time such as de Rotterdam (OMA), the new Rotterdam Central and the Markthal (MVRDV). The Markthal is so prominent in the historic inner city – as a building and as a concept – that nowadays, you can safely call it the Markthal Quarter instead of Laurenskwartier.
The area is vibrating with excitement, not only because of the new world famous construction, but shortly the Binnenrotte will be transformed into an oasis of green. The spectacular transformation of the Gelderseplein, has given the Oudehaven a new zest of life.
In a short 1.5 hour tour, our architectural guides will first take you through the Markthal. Where you’ll experience the market floor, the roof terraces of the stands, Arno Coenen’s impressive artwork and last but not least, the timestep of Rotterdam’s archeological department. During this time, the guide will take you into the mind of architect Winy Maas (MVRDV) about the urban areas. Thereafter, the guide will give further explanation of the other redevelopment projects of the Markthal Quarter.
