Rotterdam is home to a couple of the Netherlands most renowned architectural firms, such as MVRDV, Neutelings-Riedijk and especially the OMA or Office for Metropolitan Architecture, the firm of Rem Koolhaas (cf. Beijing CCTV, Seattle Public Library). There's a lot of modern architecture in Rotterdam, so naturally there must be a couple of good or at least interesting things to see there. On the other hand, I don't think it is architecturally very superior to other large Dutch cities such as Amsterdam, Utrecht or Groningen - but that's just my opinion.

I've only been to Rotterdam once myself, but I do sort of like this city so I might as well defend its honor a bit with a couple of architecturally interesting buildings. I'll only post one or two thumbnail pictures per building, for more info and pictures you should just search for it on google of flickr - or click on them



Scheepvaart- en Transportcollege
(Neutelings-Riedijk Architects)

Blaakse Bos / Kubuswoningen

Feijenoord Police Station

That's 4 examples. You can find more if you make the effort of looking around the internet a bit.

I can agree with you that the skyline of Rotterdam, for now and despite the many 100m+ buildings, looks a bit dull, because the majority of the towers have a flat roof. This should change as more projects take shape though. I also understand that a lot of it looks prefab, most probably because of the artificial materials used for the cladding. This too should gradually change. At this moment, construction is going on for Rotterdam's new tallest building, called the "Maastoren", which will be covered in granite.
