Very nice job on the Hotel Bazaar, big improvement from that soulless socreal version.

What's the point of rebuilding city walls? They look kinda weird with pristine edges...

I agree. These structures were strictly utilitarian and their beauty today lies upon the darkened, broken stones; romanticized remains of past glories and defeats. Now they look Disneyesque all shiny and new. I'd much rather have a piece of a former fortress in its original state than rebuild the whole thing for no real or useful reason (probably tourist cash). It is almost like rebuiliding the roman forum to its original state.

Rebuilding The Bijenkorf in Rotterdam?

Nonestly: The old Bijenkorf building would perfectly fitting in nowadays modernistic Rotterdam. How serious are these plans?

I believe there are no plans whatsoever to rebuild 'de bijenkorf'.
I believe Rotterdam could use some rebuilding to get a good mix between 'old' and new. But I would prefer some pre 1930's buildings.
