“De Markthallen” in Rotterdam not only mixes culture, but can also be compared with the Spakenburgse costume be the different forms, that can be found in this building. This is expressed by the geometric lines, connected on both sides of the glass cable gable. Also the powerful arc formation of the building and the floral artwork at the ceiling from Arno Loenen and Iris Roskam has Spakenburgse characteristics.
