Rotterdam Architecture Month settles podium on Het Nieuwe Instituut

Rotterdam Architecture Month and Het Nieuwe Instituut are joining forces to build an urban podium on the roof of Het Nieuwe Instituut. At the Podium, there are architecture events throughout the month of June.

The Podium is free of charge via a lift and a giant staircase along the instituteโ€™s faรงade. The neon-pink installation with its imposing exterior staircase is designed by architects MVRDV (also responsible for het Depot and the similar Rooftop Walk). It offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the architecture of the city from a whole new perspective.

Het Nieuwe Instituut will be the Festival Heart of RA Month 2022 for the entire month of June. The theme for the upcoming edition of RA Month is appropriately enough: Vista Rotterdam. On 1 June 2022, there is a festive opening at The Podium with a lecture. It kicks off a month of festivals, lectures, talks, films, tours and exhibitions about architecture. The main exhibition of RA Month has found a fitting home in Gallery 1 at Het Nieuwe Instituut. With the theme โ€˜(T)huisโ€™ (House/Home), the main exhibition ties in with the theme of the Day of Architecture.


Realization of The Podium

The Podium at Het Nieuwe Instituut gets support from the Municipality of Rotterdam, MVRDV, Rotterdam Architecture Month, Rotterdam Partners, Rotterdam Festivals, Foundation Job Dura Fund, Foundation Collection van Wijngaarden-Boot, Foundation Volkskracht, the VriendenLoterij, Dutch Steigers and Dura Vermeer.

The Podium will remain open after RA Month for other cultural activities until 17 August. After RA Month, other cultural partners are can contribute ideas for programming at The Podium.
