Online exhibition: A Circular Maritime Region

Nieuws - 07 juli 2022 - Communication BK

The online exhibition ‘A Circular Maritime Region’ presents the results of the Research & Design studio ‘Spatial Strategies for the Global Metropolis’, part of the MSc Urbanism track.

For the past six years, the curriculum has focused on exploring the spatial consequences of a circular economy in depth. What effect will it have on the environment if resources and materials are circulated in local and regional cycles? This year, twenty student groups explored regional spatial strategies that stimulate the transition towards a circular economy in the South Holland maritime region. The students explored two interrelated thematic topics within this spatial setting:

  • a transition towards a circular port economy
  • a social transition which is expected to happen in tandem with the port’s enhanced circularity.

The student groups’ reports can be accessed via links in the exhibition file.
