#SCAFFOLDING 📌 The arrival of The Stairs, a month long temporary installation celebrating 75 years of reconstruction in #Rotterdam, follows the city's tradition of celebrating reconstruction milestones.
The #steps not only offer a progression of perspectives over the city as you climb, but also give access to the roof of the Groot Handelsgebouw. Once at the top, a temporary observation deck gives you the opportunity to overlook the entire city. Also on the roof is the former cinema Kriterion, popular in the 1960s, which will open specially for the event to offer a wide variety of films, debates and performances. Furthermore, visitors will be able to enjoy refreshment facilities and find out more about the city and its development at the information point for the cultural event ‘Rotterdam celebrates the city!’.
At 29 metres tall and 57 metres long, The Stairs offer an impressive landmark for ‘Rotterdam celebrates the city!’.The scaffolding responds to the angles of the Rotterdam Central Station, connecting the contemporary icon with a #historicmonument, whilst through its construction referencing the reconstruction that the city has experienced.
