A trip to Maasvlakte 2

2011
Route from the city of Rotterdam to Maasvlakte 2, to be travelled by car or bike.
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. Instead of thinking about marketing and promoting this site, 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.
