Today, DeDAKKAS is a popular hotspot in Haarlem and one of the few rooftops in the Netherlands with a consistent program, making DeDAKKAS is a great example of rooftop activation. The place can be visited daily and offers a broad range of activities such as yoga, children activities, and open air cinema. The rooftop park will soon emerge on the rooftop as well.
But more than that, DeDAKKAS shows that higher spaces such as rooftops can offer more opportunities than what they are often being used for, and some city activists are noticing it. Are the cities of the futures going to provide with top public spaces? Are rooftops waiting for our visions to be stimulated?
