New routes Rotterdam celebrates the City!

In March 2016, the outdoor exhibition of Rotterdam celebrates the City! took place. Until the end of July that year, several reconstruction buildings in the city were literally given a face by means of laser projections.

The Groot Handelsgebouw, Het Timmerhuis, Het Maritiem Museum, Het Nieuwe Instituut, De Bijenkorf, the Library and De Doelen were all equipped with a Head Light. The interactive work of art ‘De Nieuwe Rotterdammer’ was also unveiled on Schouwburgplein on 20 March. In order to connect the different works of art in the city, Rotterdam Routes created three routes: a walking, cycling and children’s route, which can be downloaded since March 20, 2016.

The city marking was launched with the Dominoes spectacle. No fewer than 8,000 Dominoes fell from the Maritime Museum to the Schouwburgplein. This was followed by a festive program on the Schouwburgplein with a presentation by city poet Hester Knibbe, a performance by Shirma Rouse and a laser show.
