Wherein lies the attraction of the roof? Why is it always an adventure to enter a roof, to become part of the skyline or peek over the edge, as if you had suddenly surfaced from something you had been unknowingly immersed in all along? For the occasion of the Rotterdamse Dakendagen 2019, Sereh Mandias looks for an answer to these questions. The essay explores the possibilities of the flat roof and the different ways in which these have been transformed into architecture – touching upon various points in history and loosely accompanied by a number of buildings by French-Swiss architect Le Corbusier.
