MVRDV co-founder and principal architect Winy Maas is part of the Knowledge Day of the Rotterdamse Dakendagen (Rooftop Days). The event is called "A Wider Perspective" and delves deeper into the opportunities in utilising our rooftops. Knowledge Day #5 takes a look at what is happening across our borders, to determine the next step in combatting the densification of urban areas in the Netherlands;
Winy Maas will present his vision on a second layer on top of Rotterdam. Together with the Rotterdamse Dakendagen, he is currently working on the realisation of new structural connections between rooftops of Rotterdam to give them a new function to the citizens. What are the consequences of ownership, safety and precarious rights of this extension of the rooftop landscape?
