New architecture defines Rotterdam, a city that has constantly re-invented itself over the past century in a bold style distinct from other towns in the Netherlands. In the 1920s and 1930s, the Nieuwe Bouwen architectural movement used light, air and space to form the sleek lines of the Van Nelle factory. It became "the most beautiful spectacle of the modern age"€cording to Le Corbusier. In the 1970s, Piet Blom created a forest of tree houses designed as tilted cubes. Contemporary buildings continue to thrive in Rotterdam with De Markthal forms a horseshoe shape of luxury apartments arching over an indoor market.
