This year Land van Hoboken is the urban area to be discussed at the Dag van de Architectuur (Day of Architecture). During this lecture, OMI and Het Nieuwe Instituut will focus on the area’s history, and the current and future developments in Museumpark and the wide variety of city gardens in Rotterdam. Cor Geluk (Juurlink + Geluk) talks about the green spaces of the Erasmus MC, Arjen Ketting (MVRDV) shows how the roof garden of the Boijmans van Beuningen Depot will be
Land of Hoboken – Landscape of Gardens
There is also a special connection with the exhibition Dissident Gardens at Het Nieuwe Instituut. This exhibition takes the garden as a starting point, because it’s a place where man’s desire to control nature clashes with the fact that we are fascinated by wild and unspoilt forces of nature.
Afterwards we drink a lemonade from the Blossom Bar, with syrup made of flowers and plants from the garden of Het Nieuwe Instituut!
