ZUS Architects is familiar with addressing problems in cities through resident-based, pragmatic solutions. The firm is in the final stages of completing an extensive three-year campaign to bring new life to the previously run-down areas of Rotterdam, in particular by raising finances for the construction of a pedestrian bridge connecting Rotterdam’s Central and North districts through an extensive crowd-funding campaign. The realization of the Luchtsingel bridge addresses growing concern over bringing more creative innovation as well as commercial activity to the neglected economy of the North with a solution expressed by the residents themselves. The bridge in conjunction with other initiatives in the I Make Rotterdam campaign is facilitating the social and physical reconstruction of an entire neighborhood, all completed without government aid or intervention. During their Stadsklas on May 22nd, ZUS and Stipo will work their way across the Luchtsingel, which extends through the Schieblock to the Hofplein Station, to discuss the process of their project and how it has come to fruition.
