View the videos: From-Your-Rooftop Music Awards 2021!
The From-Your-Rooftop Music Awards are back! We award the best rooftop music video of the year with this jury prize. Programmers from Rotterdam music venues decide who the winners will be. There is also an audience award for the video with the most views, so you can support your favourite by keeping their video on repeat.
Rooftop Catalogue book launch, together with MVRDV and Gemeente Rotterdam
On Thursday June 3, together with MVRDV and Municipality of Rotterdam, we launched our Rooftop Catalogue! In Rotterdam alone, there are over 18.5 square kilometers of unused flat rooftops. The initiators of the catalogue believe that this should be addressed and therefore, MVRDV wrote this book. It is commissioned by the Municipality of Rotterdam and published by Rotterdamse Dakenkdagen. 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, 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.
