The city is our future. By 2050, more than seven billion of the nine billion people on earth will live in cities, posing a huge political, social, economic and ecological challenge. Making City is the main theme of the 5th International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR) and the title of the main exhibition at the NAI. The area around Rotterdam CS and Hofplein shows a possible future urban environment. Schieblock is a hub of activity with events, exhibitions, pop-up stores and pocket parks, while ZigZagCity links the main locations participating in the IABR.
