The course AR1LA051, which is part of the landscape architecture master of the TU Delft, explores the water system of the Dutch lowlands. In a collaborative effort 15 students, split in seven teams, work together to transform a “boezem”-system on the fringe of Rotterdam. The individual efforts of each group and the overall group strategy are summarized in this book.
This module was the first big group project for the first year master students and as such required a lot of organizational effort and a general willingness to discuss and find consensus and compromise. While this was made more difficult by the COVID-19 pandemic, the group nonetheless collaborated together to deliver a comprehensive project.
