Rotterdam: Architect-in-Residence

Who: Architects and curators from Germany

Section: Architecture

Duration: 2 – 3 months

Rotterdam is an internationally renowned centre of modern architecture with a diverse and trend-setting architecture scene. The city is the home of the Nieuwe Institute (formerly the Netherlands Institute of Architecture) and of various schools for architects, including the Berlage Institute and the Academy of Urban Design and Architecture. In addition to the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR), founded in 2001, the Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam (AFFR) takes place here every two years.

Once a year, the Goethe-Institut Netherlands awards a two to three-month architect-in-residency fellowship in Rotterdam, giving the fellowship holder the opportunity to carry out research in the city, become acquainted with the local scene and make contacts with well-known institutions and architecture firms. To be eligible, the applicant’s project must be related to the city’s architecture.
