Project

TOD with big boxes, Rotterdam

This competition entry for the 2008 Rotterdam Biennial was the result of a design workshop involving former MIT students. The project defines a new centrality - a bounded square - in the middle of a modernist neighborhood with large undefined open space. The life of the square is active by locating it at a subway stop; by hosting markets; and by anchoring a series of big box retail operations along its edge.
