Competition entry for the 'Rotterdam Brainpark' site for Europan 15, developed with K Bava Architects. 
The competition brief asked us to look at ways to integrate a sparsely arranged 1990s computer park/ technology campus into the surrounding city fabric and diversify its use.
Our central idea was to introduce a city grid/ block structure composed of courtyard blocks. The design experiments with opening up, infilling or breaking down the courtyard type to serve a variety of mixed uses. We arranged the blocks and adapted them in such a way that we erase much of the existing campus road structure, but retain nearly all of the existing trees and lake. This helps lend this new piece of city a sense of age and permanence that it would not otherwise have.
