Urban symbiosis with an open end

Architects: Helena Casanova and Jesús Hernández
Author main article: Robert-Jan de Kort
Rotterdam, 2013
ISBN 978-90-808734-0-7
Price: € 9

In 2001 Helena Casanova and Jesús Hernández won Europan 6 in Groningen. The first phase of construction was completed in 2012. A mortar depot first needed to be relocated and subsequently the economic crisis and the slump in market demand severely hampered further progress. De Stadswerf project is a part of the city that is open-ended because the full plan is not yet completed. The first phase of construction comprises 84 housing units including the apartment building but without the image-defining, long strip with quayside housing. Exactly when work on the master plan will continue is uncertain.
