Our teams designed two solutions for an empty school building in Hoogvliet, Rotterdam:
Ruig Nature Plaza
The idea of Ruig Nature Plaza is to engage in sustainable relations with the direct surroundings on different levels. One of the proposals that can lead to a sustainable relation is to enhance the connection between the bicycle path and the nearby nature reserve.
The idea behind Communi-Tree is that the building has the same functionalities as a tree and its immediate preconditions for its surrounding eco system. Features that are studied are the collection of solar energy and absorption of nutrients (waste) from the direct environment.
