Nature-Driven Urbanism

Onderzoeksoutput: ChapterAcademic


The city is nature. In many ways this bold statement can be contested, but at the same time wildlife is so abundant Rotterdam is called a wilderness park (Reumer, Wildpark Rotterdam. De stad als natuurgebied. Historische Uitgeverij, Groningen, 2014). One can discuss whether this is true or not, but more interesting is to see the city as a piece of nature, and as such undertake the actions to develop it further. In a city nature should not be treated as something worth to preserve, after all such unique nature can hardly be found inside urban contexts, rather something to increase, enrich and make more resilient
