The project

The building itself and the surroundings of the Fenix warehouse are full of stories. From these docks, millions of people left Europe for the New World. And from elsewhere set foot in Rotterdam.

The story of these migrants will fill the entire first floor. An art collection has been created that displays the topic of ‘movement’. Works by internationally renowned artists is combined with contemporary art, photography and objects. The collection shows meaningful, evocative art which shows the universal story of migrants: the FENIX.

The ground floor will offer a mix of creative, culinary and cultural activities for the neighborhood, the city and its visitors. On the roof a viewpoint will offer 360 degrees view onto Rotterdam.
