My ‘Kijk-Rotterdam-Rond’ viewer

10 March 2017 / By Ros
Rotterdam is my canvas in the things I love to do. Last year we celebrated our fantastic city, 75 years after the historical heart was destroyed in a bombing. There were many cultural events, giant stairs leaning against the Groot Handelsgebouw bringing us to the rooftop, a giant ferris Wheel next to Markthal at Grotemarkt - for a great view on the old and the new, ... 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 ;) Kijk Rotterdam Rond Look around from East - South - West - North, you can't miss: Grote Bibliotheek - Libary - (1983 Van den Broek & Bakema), Maastoren aka The Pencil/Het Potlood and cube houses aka Paalwoningen, (1982 - 1984 Piet Blom), the red Willems bridge (1981 - Cor Veerling) now partly covered in white plastic due to maintenance), Witte Huis (1898 - Willem Molenbroek) the first highrise in Europe, ufo-shaped station Blaak (1983 - Harry Reinders) and new bike parking (2016 -  Herschbach-Architecten), Blaakhaven (2013 ZZDP Architects), Blaak 8 (2012 - GROUP A & Dreissen architecten), Markthal (2014 - MVRDV), Willemswerf (1988 - Wim Quist), Red Apple (2009 -  KCAP Architects & Planners & Jan des Bouvrie), Waterstadstoren (2014 - HM Architecten), 100hoog (2013 - Klunder Architecten), Erasmus Bridge (1996 - Ben van Berkel), Schieland Toren (1996 - Pi de Bruijn De Architekten Cie.), WTC tower (1987 - Rob van Erk), Delfse Poort (1991 Abbe Bonnema), Millenium tower (2000 - WZMH & AGS architects), First Rotterdam (2015 - Boele & Van Eesteren en Wessels Zeist), Timmerhuis (2015 - J.R.A.
