Water is both a friend and an enemy of the City of Rotterdam. Rotterdam was founded near the water, and thanks to the water Rotterdam has on of the major ports of the world. The fact that water can also be a threat to the city becomes clear when we look at recent disasters in New Orleans or the tsunami.

Rotterdam Waterstad 2035 is the joint project of three parties for the second International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam. The content is created on the basis of a joint vision by experts of various disciplines. Apart from the publication, there is a model and an exhibition called 'The Dutch Water City'. This publication presents a complete overview of all the results of the project.
