The programme has been put together after taking stock of the wishes, ambitions and needs of Rotterdammers and institutions and organisations in Rotterdam. This resulted in ten subjects that form the basis for the Rotterdam 2001 programme, the many faces of Rotterdam. One of the ten subjects is 'Urban Living and the City as House'. This is the collective name for a large number of events and exhibitions devoted to architecture and art, which will be held throughout Rotterdam in 2001. Yet there are other programme events that concern architecture, and so here follows a complete list of programme elements related to architecture.
