Green Living City

Rotterdam, The Netherlands


Green Living City is the name of an innovative study for a new urban typology in which Broekbakema searches for sustainable answers to questions about future urban developments. The study shows that living, working and relaxing in a high-rise urban environment goes well together. It also provides interesting input for a public debate on urbanization. With Green Living City Broekbakema states that intensifying the existing city can only be accomplished by building it vertically instead of the common breadth expansion of cities. The Green Living City is literally developed in the vertical direction by stacking a mix of functions, including the public space.
