The fifth front of crowded cities offers ample space that can enable us to deal with the housing crisis, add a cooling and chilling layer that is suitable for the soaring temperatures and changing climate conditions, address the urgent need to switch to renewable energies and help create a facilitating space that accommodates all populations.
All it takes is good planning, effective policymaking, extensive research, and inspiring examples.
Rotterdam’s rooftop catalog consists of 129 options, some already existing and some still theoretical. The catalog was published in 2021 as the fruit of collaboration between the Rotterdam Rooftop Days Organization, the international firm of MVRDV Architects, and the City of Rotterdam. Their common goal was to inspire the city’s residents to open the road to a new rooftop culture.
Exhibition design: Emiel Efdée
