During the Rotterdam Architecture Month, The Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR), presents NIGHT VISION: an evening program in which we will compose multiple answers to the above question.

A lively night equals a safe night, and is thus essential for an inclusive and accessible city. Increasing real estate speculation, gentrification and a zero tolerance policy has influenced nightlife and pushed it to the periphery of our cities, ultimately resulting in the increasing marginalization of the night and its culture.

How did the architecture of the night develop, and what does this mean for the accessibility and inclusivity of our built environment and city life in general? How can the night become a core part of the city (again)?

NIGHT VISION approaches the Night from different angles: The Architecture of the night and her clubs, the relation between body and city, collective consciousness and queerness in the city.

In a panel discussion, thinkers, architects, and other actors from night culture will examine the role of the night in the city. Performances are presented by Superwow Agency. The evening is moderated by Hasna El Maroudi (Lilith Magazine).

Bogomir Doringer (I Dance Alone), David Mulder van der Vegt (XML architecture research urbanism), Yessica Deira, Colin Keays (Extra Extra Magazine), Hasna El Maroudi (Moderator)
