The eighth edition of the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR) opens on 1 June 2018: the double feature IABR–2018+2020–THE MISSING LINK, which will take place in both Rotterdam and Brussels. The opening weekend in Rotterdam marks the launch of the main exhibition and of a continuous program of activities in and around the HAKA Building in the
Merwe-­Vierhavens District (M4H).

M4H+ Rotterdam

The exhibition centers on our future in the Delta of the Low Lands, in the
Netherlands and Belgium. Six successive spaces take visitors on a quest for
The Missing Link: We know what we have to do to successfully transition to a
resilient future, so what is stopping us?
The IABR will not be stopped. In the IABR–Atelier Rotterdam, for
example, the City of Rotterdam and the IABR jointly work on one of the
Netherlands’ first energy neighborhoods in Bospolder-­Tussendijken, in
collaboration with the Delfshaven Coöperatie and housing association
Havensteder. Together with the City and the Port of Rotterdam, the IABR is
also exploring how former city harbor M4H and the surrounding
neighborhoods can be turned into a testing ground and showcase for a
technologically and socially successful energy transition in Rotterdam in the
coming years.
