City forest

Massive high-rise buildings have occupied as a main member of the city of Rotterdam. Each of them seems to compete who the hightest is, even poles for a tram. Many vertical elements standing on the ground make people uncomfortable like being overwhelmed.


The site where is between next to tram stops and the hightest building, National Netherlanden, will intervene between people and the infrastructure as a place, such as a meeting point, relaxation or playground.


This site is just used to pass by somewhere and people only stay to wait for the tram. As more vertical elements use on this district, it makes ‘forest’ to give a lively atmosphere and purpose for staying for a moment.
