De KeileZaal is a new exhibition space of 1100 m2 on the first floor of the KEILEPAND in M4H Rotterdam.  It is part of the total transformation of the Keilepand from an abandond warehouse into an ‘activity-based’ building where a wide variety of companies work together under one roof. The KeileZaal is the home of the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR), who programmed the first exhibitions in the KeileZaal as part of the Biennale IABR- DOWN TO EARTH. End of May the final Biennale exhibition will open. In September the exihibition PAST FUTURES OF M4H, an intriguing overview of the history of the Merwe-Vierhavens will be back due to overwhelming requests.
