Together with MG2D, I developed a viewer ‘Kijk Rotterdam Rond’ for the giant ferris wheel The View. Now that they are back in town until April 9th, 2017 it’s great to memorise and share this viewer with you. It’s always nice to know what you see and if you’re not into architecture, a peek into the Markthal Apartments is worth the ride 😉
