Rotterdam is my canvas in the things I love to do.

Together with MG2D, I developed a viewer ‘Kijk Rotterdam Rond’ for the giant ferris wheel The View. Now they are in town until April 2nd 2017, I like to memorize and share this viewer with you. If you take a ride, it’s always nice to know what you see and if you’re not into architecture, you can always try to peek into a Markthal Apartment – although it’s hard as they have covered one of the cabin walls with a big sticker 😉
