Rotterdam is one of the most important European capitals of contemporary architecture. The buildings that are transforming the urban skyline make the Dutch city a place favorable to change and innovative impulses. Note for the dams that today form the ring-lined Rotterdam has succeded, over the centuries, to establish itself as a fundamental port outpost for businesses throughout Europe.

The bombings of the Second World War imposed a construction of numerous skyscrapers in the late twentieth century. The new expansion area extends along the banks of the Maas River and has buildings designed by world-renowned architects such as Renzo Piano, Norman Foster and Rem Koolhaas.

Near the Markthal, signed by MVRVD studio, we want to imagine the design of a residential complex able to fit into a context with strong modernist impulses. Rotterdam Green Housing will have to provide accommodation the peoples of the new millennium with large green areas that will become meeting places for the local community. A place where will live the space with innovative attitude.
