Title of maquette: Connecting Worlds Bridge

Location/address of maquette in Rotterdam: ?

Rough Scale:

3 sentences about the vision:

Rotterdam is a windy and watery city. Since biking is so important in Holland I decided to build a responsive biking/pedestrian bridge, reacting on the water and/or wind around it.

In one way this bridge should embrace the powers of the water and wind and at the same time protect the users from these elements.

Or, simply put, taking what goes wrong here and using it in a good way:

Maquette R`dam Academics

27 May

Nicole Mechkaroff, Agnieszka Sekula, Alex Falk, Andreas Zingerle, Sietse Dols, Rotterdam Academic Group

Where: 3 projects along the Westersingel intervening with 3 significant urban conditions in need of more social interaction and diversity.

1. DeTower

Location: Intersection West-Kruiskade + Westersingel

 This site holds an important location close to Rotterdam Central Station, Chinatown and a business area. A vertical stack of observation and information areas invites the pedestrian or cycler into a maze of columns at ground level, displaying text of online blogging, tagging and twittering activity posted by the people of Rotterdam. There is also a view the nearby canal and access to other types of underground information. DeTower becomes an interactive information system that is changing due to the local community’s input and not necessarily the big companies around it.

2. Living Rooms

Location: Intersection Nieuwe Binnenweg + Westersingel

By day a floating array of platforms for daily, weekly and monthly events along the canal. By night the platforms pack into a building and form themed living rooms to house a bar function and tie in with the existing Nieuwe Binnenweg nightlife.

3. Any-theatre

Location: Near intersection Westzeedijk + Westersingel

This proposal involves a new landscaping scheme and an arched canopy framing a view of the canal which becomes a backdrop for a possible theatre, concert or outdoor cinema function. The flexible nature of the landscape design still retains the area’s existing “picnic” and “chill-out” use.

27 May

Names of students: Brian Hanschen, Vera Couvée

Title of maquette: Climate Atelier

Location/address of maquette in Rotterdam: Zuiderpark in Rotterdam Zuid

Rough Scale: 1:50

3 sentences about the vision:

Our dream was to live in nature as an arist so we designed an eco friendly atelier that is open to it’s surrounding nature. As an artist we want to be one with nature.

The atelier is a green, sustainable and carbon neutral complex. The necessary energy is supplied by solar panels, waste recycling and wind turbines.

A windmill is placed on the roof. Additionally, solar panels will be installed. A part of the panels should be able to produce energy, another part should be able to heat water.

Title of maquette: New Energies Family Houses

Location/address of maquette in Rotterdam: Dokhaven

Rough Scale: 1:150

3 sentences about the vision:

Our plan was to create a space where people live, work and shop (for groceries). We wanted to combine it so people wouldn’t need to use their car to go to their work or the shops, which would lower their CO2 emission to a minimum. Our building is a green, sustainable and carbon neutral complex. The necessary energy should be supplied by: solar panels, waste recycling and wind turbines. The buildings is shaped like a flower, representing the eco-friendly character of the building.

Location/address of maquette in Rotterdam: Rijnhaven

Rough Scale: 1:200

3 sentences about the vision:

We’ve designed a floating community, because the land is getting overpopulated. It is a self-sustaining boat-like structure with new technologies in wind-, sun- and wave energy. It will be placed just a few kilometres from the port of Rotterdam and it will have a ferry which will go to land every half an hour.
