BUILDING FURTHER ON WHAT IS THERE
Previous editions of ATELIER ROTTERDAM (IABR 2014 & 2016) demonstrated how the material flows that criss-cross the city can be better valorised and offer opportunities for a renaissance of urban activity. M4H is an attractive place for innovative pioneers. How can we encourage these entrepreneurs to close material chains? In this concept study, Team 1010 (1010 + Mariska Vogel & Ronald van der Heijden) starts from the potentials of various local actors, with the ambition to forge some promising coalitions as a foundation for circular area development. City makers dream of circular area development but often fall short in terms of actual knowledge about physical flows or the recognition of fledgling and fragile initiatives on the ground. That is why we took the bold step to start talking to a number of entrepreneurs who are already located there or might settle there in the future. A colorful pallet of information but also dreams & expectations were unleashed.
