In Talk of the town, Vers Beton discusses something that happens in town each week. This week: Architecture Month on the Water is being held for the first time and this shows where there is still room for greenery and culture in our city.
Rotterdam’s land is being built up – every square meter must be used. For space, I see Rotterdam jump. There will be no shortage of luxury apartments in the coming years. But more space for culture and green spaces for the people of Rotterdam – not the formula for the future-proof city we want to be.
Fortunately, in times of scarce free space, hope glimmers on the horizon. A number of innovators see opportunities in the genesis of our city. Rotterdam is a port city, and where there is a port, there is water. There is plenty of room on the water. There we can take a look at the floating future of our city in the coming months.
