To commemorate the 75 years of Rotterdam reconstruction, MVRDV designed a 29 meters high staircase with 180 steps, in front of the city’s Central Station.
To commemorate 75 years of the reconstruction of Rotterdam, MVRDV designed 180 steps leading up from the Stationsplein, outside Rotterdam Central Station, to the rooftop of the Groot Handelsgebouw, an iconic building in the history of the post-war reconstruction of the city. A month of activities will follow, including film screenings, debates and art events.
The scaffolding structure, assembled by Dutch Steigers, takes visitors 29 metres up to the roof top of the Groot Handelsgebouw. A viewing platform offers stunning views of the city’s skyline whilst the iconic Kriterion Cinema, once popular in the 1960s, will reopen for this month only to host a variety of films, and performances.
