DUE TO THE EXTENSION OF THE LOCKDOWN THIS EXHIBITION CANNOT BE OPENED TO THE PUBLIC AS PLANNED
MORE INFORMATION WILL FOLLOW
The City of Rotterdam’s program Weatherwise Rotterdam presented four design offices with a challenge: devise and design a future scenario for Rotterdam, keeping in mind that the city is facing climate change, extreme weather and rising sea levels. The designers were asked to take as their point of departure the decision to embrace the water, rather than continuing to fight it. And to consider whether or not we will be able to live in Rotterdam in 2060, and if so, how.

Four future scenarios
The four future scenarios will be presented at METEOPOLIS, an exhibition that offers visitors a look at Rotterdam in 2060, in the context of IABR–DOWN TO EARTH and its core question: Where Can We Land? The aim is to further an informed, open and pointed discussion about the complex problems that climate change will confront us with and to influence decision-making processes in such a way that we will still be able to live in Rotterdam in 40 years’ time.

METEOPOLIS is produced by Weatherwise Rotterdam, a program of the city of Rotterdam, a partner to whom the IABR gladly gives the floor in the context of DOWN TO EARTH.
