The vibrant and dynamic city of Rotterdam in the Netherlands is now brighter than ever with this new installation: a hot pink rooftop stage found above the Het Nieuwe Instituut (HNI), the Dutch national institute for architecture, design, and culture. Named The Podium, the eye-catching 600 sqm temporary installation is accessible to the public from June to August.
Designed by Dutch architectural firm MVRDV, the fuchsia pink elevated roof platform is accessible from the ground plaza via a 143-step external staircase of the same colour.
At a height of 29m, The Podium offers a panoramic perspective over various iconic spots in Rotterdam, including the Museumpark as well as the art storage building Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen that’s also designed by MVRDV.
