Architecture City Walk with Guide Jan

Architecture Rotterdam

The reconstructed town of Rotterdam is a good example of post-war modern architecture. The city was destroyed during the bombing of May 10th 1940, and has been under construction for the past 60 years. Prominent architects were commissioned. The Lijnbaan, the Euromast, the Kubus Woningen (Cube Houses) and the Markthal are special features. Interesting is the Sonneveld Huis, the home of the director of the Van Nelle factory (UNESCO World Heritage), designed by the same architect and still in the original state of Het Nieuwe Bouwen, complete with Gispen furniture.
