Urban Nature Map Rotterdam edt 2016 | VERENIGING DELTAMETROPOOL + LOLA
The New Urban Nature Map of Rotterdam. For a long time we have considered nature to be something that was outside the city. However, more and more we realize that nature is an inherent part of urban life, which makes us look at our cities in a new way. In the city, all kind of animals live in unexpected places and many species of plants thrive.
LOLA Landscape Architects and the Deltametropolis Association present the New Urban Nature map of Rotterdam. This map shows all the large parks and allotments of the city, as well as new urban agriculture areas. Connected by overgrown forgotten banks, derelict plots and forgotten terrains, a dense urban nature network can be created
