Placemakers joined Team Brainpark and is glad to have contributed to the winning porposal for Europan 15. Europan is a european design competition for young architects. Led by Keizer Koopmans and joined by experts from various disciplines, the team developed a proposal for the transformation of Rotterdam business park Brainpark I.
The plan mixes high density with an enormous central park and extensive water management strategy. Ground floors serve a public function and the park is surrounded by small pavillions for neighborhood activities. The Europan jury found both realism and imagination in the proposal – in terms of its (landscape) architecture, zoning plan, sustainability strategy and attention to the social function of the area.
