Markthal, Verlengde Nieuwstraat, 3011 MD Rotterdam, Netherlands
Markthal: Marvel While You MunchThe innovation and overtly sustainable sensibility of Rotterdam is displayed expertly in Markthal: The Market Hall. What's been compared to the modern Sistine Chapel of The Netherlands, Markthal boasts the synergy of living space, a cornucopia of international cuisine and a public art work all effortlessly executed in one local hub. By day, the space is a flutter with dozens of vendors with food to sample and enjoy, and by night transforms into a public space in which to marvel at the artistic arc masterpiece above. All the while, architecturally acting as an inverted take on the typical market square and providing unique housing in one fell swoop.
