URBAN GUEST CRITIC ROTTERDAM
From the Mercedes star to a fried egg
Every two years, the Rotterdam entrepreneurs association “Van der Leeuwkring” invites an international guest critic to visit Rotterdam for several days. Accompanied by the AIR foundation, the expert is to reflect on the city’s overall development from the perspective of an experienced outsider. In his public lecture at Rotterdam University in November 2013, Klaus Overmeyer tells of his experiences in the city, speaking about big tankers and small boats, crisis architects, creative property owners and the value of city councils.
