Landscape imagination: Ecology and Industry

Designing a transition for the Port of Rotterdam into a productive landscape Park

More Info


The thesis project is a design exploration of a transition for Port of Rotterdam from a nature-based perspective into a productive landscape park. Productive landscape park is a place of co-existence where ecology and industry work together, rather against each other in order to remediate existing ecological damages in the port, promote biodiversity and ecological protection and anticipate economical alternatives. The exploration turns into a development strategy in terms of images (‘strategies’) that adapt the landscape of port of Rotterdam trough various scales and time dimensions.
