Rondleiding Floating Office Rotterdam (FOR)
Our Floating Office Rotterdam (FOR) marks the start of the larger redevelopment of the Rotterdam Rijnhaven port. Within this development, FOR reflects the mission of its main user, the Global Center on Adaptation (GCA), housing the headquarters of this top global knowledge center. Our exceptionally climate-resistant building is energy positive, CO2 negative and if the water level rises due to climate change, it will float.
FOR is a vision of what sustainable architecture can be. A modular, timber building on a floating platform, with a deceptive simplicity. It combines many high-tech sustainable solutions – including a water-cooling system and solar panels – with low-tech ones, such as the passive shading provided by the pitched roof and overhanging terraces. The combination of these solutions is an innovative take on sustainable architecture and results in a building that is natural and unforced. The wood construction, green roof, and clarity of design create an architecture that is friendly and human, rather than high-tech. In this way, FOR sets the tone for the transformation of the Rotterdam Rijnhaven port – now becoming a lively residential area.
The event starts off with the vision of the municipality for the Rijnhaven area, followed by a tour through the Floating Office.
