AFFR History

The Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam (AFFR) was established in 2000, and the foundation organized its festival the same year as the first architecture film festival in the world. Festivals also took place again in 2001 and 2003. In 2007 AFFR made a fresh start after a few years of silence. In 2009 the event expanded significantly in terms of visitor numbers and programming.

Where We Grow Older

Where We Grow Older

By 2030, 1 in 6 people in the world will be aged 60 years or over, an increase that is already visible in high-income countries. People’s physical and social environments, such as our homes, neighbourhoods and communities, play a fundamental role in ensuring that we can spend our old age in good health. Where We Grow Older starts off in Barcelona, where the city administration has seen it as its duty to provide housing where people can grow old in well-designed, supportive environments, so that they can maintain physically and socially active lives. We then visit Baltimore, where a group of architects and artists are working together with caretakers to co-design elderly housing with their perspective in mind.
