Rotterdam has gone through a substantial transition over the past decades, from post-war modernism (1950 -1960s) to the today’s successful, people-friendly urban environment. Rotterdam now focuses on creating wholesome and public living in a healthy city where architecture touches subjects such as families in the city, mobility, and sustainability. Within the designs of both the urban plan and the architecture of the city, this new urgency for these subjects is being shown through tactical urbanism such as a walking bridge for pedestrians (De Luchtsingel) and new housing projects that will include apartments for families.
