Fifty years after the publication of the Club of Rome’s report, the jubilee Architecture Biennale Rotterdam 2022 took stock. It's About Time combined historical research (as of 1972) with inspiring practical examples (in 2022) and future scenarios (towards 2072). The works exhibited by architects, urban designers, artists, scientists, and landscape designers depicted the causes and consequences of climate change, but also offered perspectives for action.

The 10th edition of the IABR was more than a wake-up call. Rather than simply outlining a bleak worldview, it presented hopeful possibilities for new, more radical courses towards a livable future, and introduced radical, feasible transitions leading to a just and ecologically healthy world. 

The 10th IABR presented three architecture exhibitions with more than 150 projects and offered a program of guided tours, (children’s) workshops, field trips, lectures, and debates.
