ECRN – european creative rooftop network

The European Creative Rooftop Network (ECRN) is a network of organisations, working ‘together apart’ to use European rooftops as creatively as possible. Why? Because the future lies in this partially undiscovered layer of urban space. From the generation of new places to meet and the creation of cultural breeding grounds, to innovative living labs exploring sustainability – anything is possible. Individually, all these European rooftop pioneers are already making every effort to scale the heights, but partnerships make you stronger and smarter. ECRN creates international connections to maximise local impact.

Let’s aim high!

united for a new perspective

landmark project

Artist Larsen Bervoets (Antwerp, 1979) is a multi-disciplinary and experimental artist. Coming months he will work on 6 different roofs throughout Europe, starting in Gothenburg. His works are characterised by tight geometric compositions that give an impression of ‘a space’. Often in these creations colours and colour patterns create an illusion of an extra dimension.

member meetup in Rotterdam

The spring meeting 2024 was organized by our partners from Rotterdam. After the weekend of the Rotterdamse Daken Dagen and their knowledge day, we worked mainly on the future of ECRN. We also discussed the symposium in Faro at the end of the year (October 2-3). Team Rotterdam took us along many amazing high-rise rooftops, some currently in scaffolding (Hofbogen park) and some realized (Depot Boijmans van Beuningen). Thank you for hosting us!
