Rotterdam Academy of Architecture and Urban Design, 2021
The exhibition NOW! has been set up but cannot be opened to the public due to the lockdown. However, 150 students, two academies and one IABR are hell-bent on bringing you its content.
NOW! FROM APRIL 5 THROUGH MAY 26 ON INSTAGRAM:
NOW! Designing in times of climate crisis
IABR–DOWN TO EARTH asks the question: Where can we land? In response, the Rotterdam Academy of Architecture and Urban Design (RAVB) and the Graphic Design (BA) and Non Linear Narrative (MA) departments of the Royal Academy of Visual Arts (KABK) dedicated their education programs in the autumn of 2020 to an exploration of how designers can relate to the climate crisis and what action they can take.

From September 2020 until the summer of 2021, the IABR will present a series of relatively small exhibitions and other activities. We will also find safe ways to organise a limited number of events, such as work sessions and lectures.
Because of the pandemic, all plans and dates are subject to change. So, check our website and agenda regularly, subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on twitter and instagram
Crucially however, make sure to stay healthy, safe and sane!
