    Rotterdam architectural highlight

    Being involved with architecture and construction makes living in Rotterdam pretty cool (among many other things). It seems that almost everything goes when it comes to architecture here and the new art depot for the Boijmans van Beuningen museum that opened this week is yet another example. I am in no way involved with this building, but it is very cool.

    It is placed in a pretty large open space, with a park nearby and a location for out door festivals etc. so very wel visible from all sides.

    Just thought I'd share some images as I know people here are interested in this kind of cool architecture and construction.

    Kubuswoningen (Cube houses)

    So, from the latest edition of interesting architecture in Rotterdam in the previous post to probably one of the first.

    Build in 1982/1984, designed by Piet Blom and still attracts architecture students and enthusiasts. One of the houses is open for visitors.

    I'm thankful you included the interior shot ... my poor ear equilibrium was starting to get dizzy.

    Very fun & whimsical!

    It is a weird one when you stand in front of it as well. And I have actually never been inside myself.

    Markthal

    OK lets keep this thread going with another great building from my hometown of Rotterdam.

    This is the Markhal, designed by world famous MVRDV.
    It is an indoor market with shops and restaurants in the first 2 floors of the arch and apartments above that. It also has the larges piece or art in the world on the ceiling with a mural of stuff you can buy at the market, which is 36,000 ft2 or 3344 m2.

    The large glass facades on both ends can move 70cm (27 inches) due to wind, I always intended to go and watch when there was high wind, but still never did.

    It was finished in October 2014

    interesting building. I'd love to see the construction details of the end curtain walls. It looks like some sort of tensioned cable grid to hold the glazing??

    At some point the model was available online to view, but could not find it again

    But there is actually a pretty cool PDF about that curtain wall

    https://www.joostdevree.nl/bouwkunde...ctatube_nl.pdf

    And some interesting close-up pictures

    thanks for the link Robin. Although I don't speak/read Dutch I do understand the technical illustrations of the tensioned cable system. I've detailed curtain walls using similar systems here in the USA but they were much much smaller. I can understand the 27" of mid wall deflection under wind force using that system at that scale. It would be sort of scary to be in the vicinity during a high wind event I think
