Rooftop Catalogue book launch, together with MVRDV and Gemeente Rotterdam

In June of 2021, together with MVRDV and Municipality of Rotterdam, we launched our Rooftop Catalogue! Rotterdam alone features over 18.5 square kilometers of unused flat rooftops, most of which not or under-utilised. The initiators of the catalogue believe that this should be addressed. The book was written by MVRDV, commissioned by the Municipality of Rotterdam and published by Rotterdamse Dakendagen. This Rooftop Catalogue aims to inspire people, not only in Rotterdam but all over the world. Curious what the book has to offer?

International Knowledge Day: towards a sustainable and layered city

On Friday 4 June 2021, our annual Knowledge Day took place – a three-part in-depth programme (in English) for professionals and other rooftop enthusiasts. The Knowledge Day had a strong international focus and consisted of the Rooftop Farmers’ Meet-up (in cooperation with DakAkker), interactive lunch workshops and the TOP^ summit about the sustainable layered city (in cooperation with Architecture Institute Rotterdam). The full Knowledge Day programme took place online.

Watch our Rooftopics: interviews with rooftop experts

Research on the use of rooftops is, due to the COVID-crisis, more relevant than ever. For this reason we started our online  interview series Rooftopics. Léon van Geest, director of the Dakendagen, visits rooftop experts and initiators on ‘their’ rooftops and talks with them about development of these remarkable projects and their visions for the future. The first interviews (about Depot Boijmans van Beuningen, the DakAkker and Erasmus MC and others) are now online.
