On the 4th of July, these perspectives will form the basis for exciting presentations, discussions and hefty debates on the future of spatial planning.
Why are business areas still being built? When will the bike, as the future means of transport, be given priority in the city? When will the office market bubble burst? Can provinces play a role in stimulating the labour market? Is it just to build in the Delta? On this day, we want to raise the questions that have not yet been asked, and to highlight the problems that we have tried to dodge. Friday, 4th of July, 12:30 in the Kunsthal Rotterdam. Free entry, register now!
