Limited Capacity filling up


The transformation of Katendrecht in Rotterdam, the grand-scale redevelopment of the inner harbour and industrial site into an urban residential and living area, is characterized by a long lead time, and a large and diverse group of stakeholders who determine the success of the present and the foreseeable future. What can we learn of the collective history? Can we think of a feasible and practicable model in which the local value added and existing quality are taken as starting points?

The session Beyond Gentrification explores a new development logic that fits the Next Economy that respects the needs of the real estate developer, both old and new residents, and entrepreneurs. A context where new collectives of individuals and small players, DIY builders and real estate developers, can exist side by side.

The session takes place in the middle of the exhibition of IABR-2016-THE NEXT ECONOMY and is organized by Heijmans, AIR and the IABR.
