The Podium . Rotterdam

MVRDV

This summer, a new temporary event location will grace the roof of Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam. At a height of 29 metres – accessed via a 143-step staircase – The Podium’s visibility will be increased by its striking pink colour. Het Nieuwe Instituut commissioned MVRDV to create the 600-square-metre event space, which will be programmed by a variety of Rotterdam institutions and creatives. Enabling the use of a rooftop that has never before been accessible to the public, The Podium offers a unique opportunity to experience architecture, the city, the Museumpark and Het Nieuwe Instituut from a completely new perspective. The Podium will open on June 1st, forming the heart of the Rotterdam Architecture Month Festival, and it will continue to be used for events until August 17th. Continue reading MVRDV
