bowl building rotterdam-1 Photos: MVRDV

Dutch architecture firm MVRDV has been chosen to build a new art depot in Rotterdam that will house much of the city’s precious works.

As you can see, their competition-winning design has a rounded, mirrored facade that will reflect the area’s surroundings back onto itself — Rotterdam’s Museumpark, which will be completed in 2017.

The six-story bowl building will feature public and private exhibition halls, a rooftop sculpture garden, a restaurant and offices. Indeed it’s a striking design, but like this mirror house, we imagine it will confuse the local avian population.
