Last week Octatube has installed the first glass panels at the cablenet facades of the Market Hall in Rotterdam. Because of the pre-stressed facade system the glass facades at both ends of the building are as transparent as possible. The transparency activates the relation between inside and outside. As a result also the display of the artwork in the interior reaches its full potential.

Although the building is still under construction, the internal space has already got its own nickname: 'the Sistene Chapel' of Rotterdam.
