Program: pedestrian bridge
Architects: ZUS (Elma van Boxel and Kristian Koreman)
Completion: July 2015
ZUS devised the Luchtsingel plan in 2011. In 2012, as co-curators of the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR), the station area was renamed Test Site Rotterdam. It consisted of eighteen interventions, all connected by one continuous route: the Luchtsingel. For financing, the “I Make Rotterdam” crowd founding campaign was started; for €25 anyone could buy a board inscribed with their name, and over 8000 boards were sold. In 2012, the Luchtsingel won the Rotterdam City Initiative, which enabled further financing of the project.
