Rotterdam Centraal presented at The Building Centre, London, UK

The Netherlands Embassy in London, in collaboration with The Building Centre, brings together experts in Dutch design, construction, academia and business to share their experience of partnering with UK organisations and disseminate their innovative architectural ideas. West 8 was invited to present at the seminar under the theme “Green City Thinking. The Dutch Connectors: Research, Innovation and Partnerships“.

On 4th Mar 2014, Joost Koningen represented West 8 to speak in an evening seminar. The semniar offered an unique insight into the design and development of Rotterdam’s Centraal Station, one of the most important transport hubs in The Netherlands. With the advent of both the HST and RandstadRail the number of daily travelers at Rotterdam Centraal is expected to triple by 2025. The presentation explained how the design allows for future growth and creates a new, dignified entrance to the city.

Rotterdam Centraal is a project by Team CS, a cooperation between Benthem Crouwel Architekts, MVSA Meyer en Van Schooten Architecten and West 8
