Rotterdam: Architecture Highlights Tour including the Depot
- Small group
- Duration: 2.5 hours
We are part of an Architectural Practice from Dublin and our visit was intended to take in the most recent developments in Rotterdam. I had lived there between 1979-1982 and the developments over a short span was enormous. From the redevelopment of the train station as an Iconic building in a short period to the Markthal building and the new high rise office building De Rotterdam made for an interesting architectural with the historic footnotes added. Anet was a great host and interesting with her comments and observations with her added book material to illustrate her points with regard to history and place. The tour itself can only cover a small part of the architectural past that is Rotterdam but lots of exciting building are in the pipeline for a progressive city. The water taxi ride was novel to us and an interesting break form the architectural jargon which may be alien to some tourists.
