Living in the heart of the city, in the middle of the urban vibe, is becomming popular.
As a result, means that cities like Rotterdam are facing a challenging task to ‘top-up’ excisting buildings to provide for extra horizontal space.
In the study “Licht Verdicht”, moderated by the ‘Branchevereniging Nederlandse Architectenbureaus'(BNA), seven multidisciplinary design teams looked at how to literally bring Rotterdam’s city center to a greater extent.
For the project “Lumiere Lijnbaan”, Trndmrkr (Hortense Koster) worked together with Adam Smit, Mijke Rood (ZZDP Architecten), Walter Spangenberg, Rudi Roijakkers (ABT), Edwin Santhagens and Stephen Tas (Santenco). Trndmrkr was respondible for a trend trend research on the furture needs of users to live, work and shop in the project “Lumiere Lijnbaan”.
The results of the study are published in the book Licht Verdich. The book shows how we can create new space on top of the old giants already standing. Renewal without demolition: it can – with some perseverance – lead to beautiful things. As Hans Ibelings writes in his view: Lightweight is a plea not to choose the path of least resistance and, where possible, to build on what is already.
The Book Licht Verdicht and is available in Dutch on the site of the BNA
