On Think Tank from IABR website –“As part of the Test Site Rotterdam, the Think Tank is currently exhibiting projects developed by local stakeholders, cultural and educational institutions, and design practices that test these new models and tools for ‘making city’. The exhibit includes drawings, models, as well as full-scale interventions throughout the Test Site. The Test Site Think Tank provides the opportunity to explore new models and tools for the city. For this we use the method of a ‘sabbatical detour’. Outside the conventions of planning, we initiate experimental research in design. “
Other participants include Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Architecture de Versaille, TU Delft, Inside Royal Academy of Arts The Hague, and The Fresh Foundation.
