Lec­ture | Dec2015
RAoB Rotterdam Academy

We centered the lecture around our interest in spontaneous colonization of public spaces (both by people and by nature) with a special attention to the city of Rotterdam.
In-fact back in 2012 we made several field trips in neglected part of the city as industrial areas an vacant lots studying the spontaneous wild vegetation growing there. Non-native plants thrive where native ones do not: their importance is crucial. We deepen our interest with our Diverse Networks project , a strategy for increasing biodiversity in Rotterdam by rethinking and reusing the public transportation network.
