Technical realization of the initial phase of vakmanstad.nl which included custom made map-engine for visualizing cartographic statistics for Rotterdam.
With the rather robust transition from Labour City to Cultural City Rotterdam runs the risk of neglecting an infrastructural dimension of the city. Urban renewal in a physical sense cannot go without a social and cultural program. Rotterdam Vakmanstad (skill-city) is a vision that strives for an entrepeneurial craftmanship that is based on the stimulation of edication and social formation. It is about taking the creative potential of people serious and to develop this potential into creative skills. Rotterdam Vakmanstad is therefore a chance to close the gap that has been created through rapid developments and a limited global-economic perspective on the city. Rotterdam Vakmanstad is a project by The Maze Corporation and AIR (Architecture Institute Rotterdam). (link)
