This was an assigment for school. We went for an excursion to Rotterdam, so we could get to know the place. After that we had 5 more weeks to finish the design.
For this place I wanted to create a space that is on the edge of open and closed. An area where people who pass by feel invited to go trough.
The clients wanted a space that was flexible in use. The concept i came with was a marionette theater. The exciting thing about this is, that the control of the arrangement is from above. The Pergola that is placed gives room for a small stage and various objects such as hammocks and theater-clothes.
Since Rotterdam has the top 5 biggest skyscrapers of the Netherlands, it now has the biggest pergola of the country.
