Atelier Rotterdam: The Productive City

The results of Atelier Rotterdam are documented in the publication The Productive City – Development Perspectives for a Regional Manufacturing Economy. This publication is a presentation of the results of the research by design of the IABR–2016–Atelier Rotterdam.

The Atelier has conducted research by design to identify the opportunities for the future of the Metropolitan Region Rotterdam The Hague from the perspective of the next manufacturing economy. The Atelier presents seven spatial development perspectives on the scale of the Metropolitan Region Rotterdam The Hague. They do not constitute an all-encompassing strategy, but a range of strategic and prototypical interventions that strengthen the regional manufacturing economy and thus contribute to an economically strong and socially inclusive urban region.

The publication is available from IABR for € 12,50, postage and handling excluded. To order please click here.
