Rotterdam Water City 2035
RotterdamUrban water adventure
Rotterdam is an exceptional city with its low location at the mouth of a river, in a delta, close to the sea. The presence of this water is barely perceptible, however, in large parts of the city. Rotterdam is currently not a riverside city, but rather an unusual city trying to be as usual as possible. In the coming century the water will pose an increasing threat to the city from four directions: the sea, the river, the sky and the land. In this design study the water threat is seized upon to examine a number of other pressing topics in the city. five future perspectives not only sketch solutions for the water problem they also put forward opportunities for a more attractive city.
