Rotterdam Architecture Month

Rotterdam Architecture Month   

Exhibitions, debates, rooftop party's, excursions and sleepovers at an architects place. In June Rotterdam is all about architecture. With a loaded programme there's fun activities for architects as well as anyone else. These are the first announced programme sections:

The free architecture festival ZigZagCity takes you on a journey to the South of Rotterdam from the 16th until the 26th of June. You'll get the opportunity to follow a route along both well-known and hidden spots in the South of Rotterdam with plenty of performances and art along the way. The festival invites you to take a different look at the city, together with architects and artists.

Rotterdamse Dakendagen
During the so-called 'Rotterdamse Dakendagen' Rotterdam can be experienced from up high. At more than 40 familiar, unfamiliar and private roofs the city can be experienced from a different perspective. Join the expedition or a Friday evening drink, visit concerts silent dico party's, rooftop bars, silent cinema or sport activities. There will also be a kids programme and expert meetings for professionals. It's hard to believe, but all of this takes place on the roofs of Rotterdam!
