A study assignment commissioned by the city of Rotterdam.
The Blaak - West Blaak in Rotterdam is a high potential city street, located in the city centre. Designed after the WW2 bombing of the city in 1940, the street was primarily designed for cars and traffic. Nowadays this car-orientated design in a city centre, creates a dysfunctional public space and forms a barrier for pedestrians.
By downgrading the roads, and upgrading the public space, we give back the city to the pedestrian.
