Open Office Day

On June 24, 2023, established design and architecture firms in Rotterdam will open their doors during the annual Open Office Day. This day is a perfect time to get acquainted with architects, to learn more about the background and working methods of the various offices and to meet each other.


Visit Rotterdam offices

Get acquainted with innovations, experimentation and innovation in design practice. During the Open Desk Day you can walk around freely at all desks. Some agencies also offer a program, such as a film screening or a lecture. Rotterdam is an important breeding ground for both young and established design firms, which work together on all kinds of complex local, national and international spatial issues.

Closing drink

At the end of the Open Office Day, there will be a drink from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Personal Architecture (Goudsesingel 230). You do not have to sign up for this drink. Everyone is welcome!
