If a country was a house, then it’s largest city would be the kitchen, and if we’re talking about Rotterdam, then the Rotterdam Market Hall would be the cheese grater in said kitchen. Are you following?

What I mean is, the incredible arching construction and systematic window placements of the Rotterdamn Market Hall has lent it an uncanny resemblance to a gigantic cheese grater—which of course, the Dutch architects MVRDV probably did not intend. The Rotterdamn Market Hall is actually a huge marketplace and living space planned to be finished in 2014, that will house 100 market stalls, shops and restaurants, as well as a plethora of apartments.
