Opbouwdag is an archetypal Rotterdam event where we celebrate the (re)construction of the city on and around May 18. This year is a special year; it is 75 years since the first edition was held with the future in mind. There was an incredible amount to build, the housing shortage was high. Reason enough to rekindle the experiment, enthusiasm and energy of that time. This year's edition of Opbouwdag is therefore dedicated to the 'Future as a tradition'!
