Sustainable Rotterdam

The city is re-inventing itself

Project Proposals

Thursday, April 06, 2006

Sustainability, Urban Development & Mobility
The Rotterdam Tour offered the opportunity to understand the re-invention of the city in the areas of sustainability, innovation and creativity. Many questions still have to be answered, so we invite students and researchers to become active players by providing comprehension and reinforcing the re-invention process. As starting point we propose the following projects which may provide inspiration for academics, practicioners and policy makers.

Rotterdam and the base of the pyramid
Goal: Develop a range of simple & functional solutions for the base of the pyramid in western societies

Under which circumstances can LED technology be used in urban lighting?
Goal: Define the "do & don't " of Light Emiting Diodes in urban environments

Designing a more functional and less intrusive city: Integration of urban elements
Goal: Development of multi-functional urban solutions

Mapping urban advertisement in Rotterdam
Re-think the use of advertisement in public spaces

Exploring Rotterdam city branding
Goal: Develop a branding strategy for the city of Rotterdam

Stadshaven offers a great opportunity for projects in a range of subjects. CityPorts Rotterdam is organizing an international competition accepting suggestions on how to mix city and port in the Stadshaven area. You can propose your own projects; some of you showed interest in the following issues:

=> How can urban planners and mobility designers work together to improve human interaction and community development in Stadshaven?

=> How can people-centered infrastructure design affect pedestrian environment in Stadshaven?

=> How can be designed the urban environment of Stadshaven, and how, in turn, this affects its accessibility?
