Rotterdam was founded in the century XIII before a dam which was built above the river Rotter and this is where the name of the city comes from. Rotterdam recived the municipal duties in 1340 and in 1360 a defensive wall was built around the city.
Rotterdam can be famous for its peculiar buildings. For example we can find the cubic houses in Rotterdam.
Cubic houses are a set of innovative houses. The designer titled the cube of a conventional house 45º and all of them are rested upon a hexagon pylon. It represents a village where the houses represent a tree and all the houses together represent a forest.
There is too the pencil building, located next to the cubic houses. It looks like this:
And in front of all of them we find the Markthal
The Market Hall is a residental - and office building with a market hall underneath.
If we go to the Euromast we can enjoy the Rotterdam view, a beautiful and nice city.
