A trip to Maasvlakte 2

2011
Route from the city of Rotterdam to Maasvlakte 2.
Commissioned by Havenbedrijf Rotterdam (Port of Rotterdam)

The Port of Rotterdam was in search of ways of attracting the public to the Maasvlakte 2. In that year Maasvlakte 2 was just created and beside the sand there was nothing. To me, the site was a fake environment at the end of a trip from the real city and through the industrial harbours. From my observation that the trip to Maasvlakte 2 is more exciting than this destination, I composed a route from the city of Rotterdam to this site, which would show the transition from the urban landscape of Rotterdam into the industrial zone of the port. This route (50km) can be done in one hour by car, however, by walking it, the shifts between different types of urban zones and atmospheres are perceived best.
