workshop regeneration Mathenesserweg


zicht op Mathenesseweg

Due to closing of small businesses, more and more vacant store fronts appear in the Mathenesserweg in Rotterdam. Besides deterioration of the business climate, this also negatively effects the perception of safety and liveability in the area. To tackle these problems residence set up neighbourhood enterprise. With support of the housing association Havensteder they commissioned Veldacademie to investigate possibilities to reduce vacancy and improve the liveability of the area.

Workshop neigbourhood regeneration

Within this challenging assignment Veldacademie organizes a workshop where you, as master student urban design and planning, will learn new methods to understand social, economic and physical processes in the urban environment. Within an interdisciplinary team and under guidance of professionals you will analyse and develop strategies for the Mathenesseweg.

Graduation at Veldacademie
