Dear friends, colleagues and partners,
We proudly would like to invite you, on behalf of the curatorial team of the 5th International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, to the official opening of Test Site Rotterdam. Over the last three years, in the midst of the unpredictable circumstances of the financial crisis, Test Site Rotterdam served as the testing ground for a large collaboration of local stakeholders that engaged with strategically MAKING CITY. Our hands-on research led to the birth of 18 projects that represent chances and opportunities that are present in today’s urban reality.
Thursday the 19th of April from 1800h onwards we want to welcome you to come to the Delftsehof where food and drinks will be available. At 1900h the Test Site will be officially opened followed by inaugurational speeches by our honorable alderman Miss Antoinette Laan (Sports, Recreation, Arts and Culture) and Miss Korrie Louwes (Labour, Higher Education, Innovation and Participation). After the official opening of the Test Site and the first part of the Luchtsingel, the night will be full of dance and music performances, culminating in the opening of Motel Mozaique at the Hofbogen.
We look forward to welcome you at the Test Site.
Elma van Boxel & Kristian Koreman
