Okay, different but it wasn't worth 3 euro to walk through for 5 minutes. A good way to make money off tourist without working. One time only thing but better to view from outside unless you just curious about the inside.

I took my 11 year old grandson here. He lived it and definitely wants a place like this when he grows up. Though we weren t the only visitors we could see the appartment and climb to the third level. A weird house but a must see.

Only a 30 second walk from The Markthal, this second piece of of super architecture is cleverly presented to the eye. Everything looks oddly built, but close up it is brilliantly done. The two rows of yellow cubes, are 90° to a centre tall building I believe to be apartments. This centre piece tower looks like a very upmarket dove... More

For architecture lovers, seeing the famous 'Kubushuizen' (‘cube houses’) on the pedestrian overpass over the Blaak (a large street in Rotterdam) is a must. The 38 houses, basically slanted dices in wood, glass and concrete, resting on concrete poles, date from the eighties. They were designed by Dutch architect Piet Blom (1934-1999), whose idea to leave the space underneath the... More

These apartments were designed and constructed in the 70s, and they show it. They are crazy and take some effort to climb up the stairs into the model. The concept is that they are a village within a city where each house represents a tree, and all the houses together represent a forest. They are three floors and are inhabitable,... More

build in the 80's, they remain very interested and popular. You can choose to visit the show model house, but also walk around.

It took us all of 10 minutes to walk around but it was certainly a cute attraction and a bit of a talking point. Just about worth the three euros to get in as it was at least unique. Worth a go if you have time.
