Many functions are combined in the Rotterdam Roof Park project: It is a shopping mall, a parking garage, a park on the roof, and last but not least, a flood defense. The research in our program was done after the buildings and structures had been built. So the research projects were not hampered by the conflicting interests of stakeholders during the design and implementation process, as might sometimes be the case in so-called ‘action research’. Still, the case study of the Roof Park clearly shows the pros and cons of Multifunctional Flood Defenses
