International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam 27 September to 8 November
This project reveals a new vision of the restructuring of existing districts. As part of the Waterhaven Gaasperdam project, the renovation of homes will be left to the residents, who will given scope to extend their homes as they see fit. The public space in the area will be radically redesigned. Taking inspiration from the neighbouring area of Vechtplassen, Gaasperdam will be transformed into a leafy urban landscape with water flowing through every artery of the district. Project commissioned by DRO Amsterdam for the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam 2009.
