High-rise Nature Inclusivity in M4H, Rotterdam
Students: Weronika Dardzinska, Alan Dolieslager, Jeanique Romeijnders, Basti Schleier
Teachers: ir. Pierre Jennen, dr. ir. Willemijn Wilms Floet, Holly Dale
1. the environmental act of inhabitating: ecological occupancy
2. Settlement concerned with the relation of living organisms
Problem statement: How could a reordered hierarchy of humans and non-humans transform the industrial M4H city scape into a nature inclusive landscape?
Deconstruction of the industrial buildings will create a Ruin Park: the identity of the new green living environment in which non-humans and humans live and work together. The new housing in a geometrical volume has the smallest footprint to create more space for nature in the surrounding area. And the wooden deconstructable tower is in dialogue with existing M4H high rise landmarks. A wooden community tower where people live together with nature, with community spaces simulating an outdoor garden environment.
