Tuin … aan het Water

    In Charlois a new meeting place with a fantastic view of the skyline of Rotterdam is arising: Tuin … aan het Water. Nowadays the south quay of the Maashaven is grey and paved. The new garden makes the area more attractive to inhabitants (green), stimulates participation (making together) and promotes nature education.

    A green oasis along the quay

    The garden Tuin … aan het Water answers the needs of the inhabitants in Charlois for a green meeting place along the quay. In this neighbourhood in the South of Rotterdam people without work search for a useful way of spending their days. Gardening can answer both needs.

    By planting the garden together participation stimulated, education about nature is encouraged and a start for more green along the quay is made. For the inhabitants of Charlois a new spot at the water is created.

    The garden Tuin … aan het Water is an initiative of Vitibuck and Stedelinks 010. Students from the University of Applied Sciences Rotterdam have made a design together with the inhabitants. For realisation we work with a local gardener and volunteers from the neighbourhood.
