Fantastic three-day trip to Rotterdam to contribute to 'Productive City' conference as part of IABR-2016. Lively reception to my lecture, warm generous hospitality and, the day after the formal summit, fascinating presentations on, and tour of, Rotterdam workhomes. It was great to see diverse approaches to blurring the living/working boundary.
And to cycle the streets of the city as a group of 8, including Rotterdam's Chief Planner and its Head of Urban Design, was completely novel, but wonderful, for me. Impossible in London for many reasons. Left with impression of Rotterdam as a city of possibilities - full of people with open, curious minds and a can-do attitude. Wonderful.
