On top of the Schieblock office building in the center of Rotterdam the largest rooftop-farm in Europe is situated: “the DakAkker”. Here fruits, vegetables and herbs are grown and honey bees are kept. The DakAkker functions as a test site to experiment with different ways of green-roofs and farming in the city. The Dakakker was created in April 2012 by Binder Groenprojecten and initiated by ZUS¬†and developed by ZUS in collaboration with the Rotterdams Milieucentrum (Environmental Centre Rotterdam). The DakAkker is one of the projects of the City Initiative The Luchtsingel¬†and exhibition-site during the International Architecture Biennale 2012.
