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. 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 600-square-metre event space opens on June 1st, forming the heart of the Rotterdam Architecture Month Festival, and it will be programmed by a variety of Rotterdam institutions and creatives. After Rotterdam Architecture Month, it will continue to be used for events until August 17th.
