LocationScan Floating Pavilion Rotterdam

Date: December 2008

In preparation of the development of the Floating Pavilion in Rotterdam a study was conducted on the relevant spatial, technical and policy aspects with regard to floating construction. Furthermore, the City Ports area in Rotterdam was investigated, in order to find the most suitable location for a floating demonstration project.

The LocationScan has been executed in two phases. In the first phase, a shortlist of possible locations has been made through a study on boundary conditions in the City Ports area. This encompasses physical (depth, waves) and juridical (ownership, regulations) boundary condition. In the second phase the most suitable locations were determined by applying criteria and a functional analysis of the planning area.
