De Rotterdam: OMA Completes Mixed-Use 'Vertical City'

De Rotterdam: OMA Completes Mixed-Use 'Vertical City' | Urbanisme | Scoop.it

OMA today marks the completion of De Rotterdam, a mixed-use, 160,000m2 slab-tower conceived as a ‘vertical city’ on the river Maas. The three stacked and interconnecting towers rise 44 floors to a height of 150 meters and span a width of over 100 meters. Nevertheless, the building is exceptionally compact, with a mix of programs organized into distinct but overlapping blocks of commercial office space, residential apartments, hotel and conference facilities, restaurants and cafes. 


“Efficiency has been a central design parameter from day one. The extreme market forces at play throughout the course of the project, far from being a design constraint, have in fact reinforced our original concept. The result is a dense, vibrant building for the city.”

Sustainable architecture, and sustainable constructions, and sustainable trading. Everything should be thought on a sustainable point of vue.

Sur les rails, la verdure

Sur les rails, la verdure | Urbanisme | Scoop.it

De plus en plus de villes reconvertissent d’anciennes voies ferrées en parcs linéaires. De New York à Paris en passant par Lausanne, coup d’oeil sur ces corridors verts qui séduisent tant les riverains que les touristes.


Préservation du patrimoine industriel, revitalisation de quartiers, amélioration de la qualité de vie des citadins et création de sites récréatifs de premier plan: tout milite en faveur de la reconversion de viaducs ferroviaires en parcs aériens.
