Floating Pavilion, Rotterdam

Floating Urbanisation

Multifunctional Climate Adaptation

Created at: 22 Nov 2014


This eye-catching structure in Rotterdam has become a global example for climate adaptation and sustainable innovation. It’s an attractive conference and exhibition space designed to be relocated. The floating pavilion bridges the gap between port and city – land and water – and offers attractive working and living environments in the historic port area. Floating structures provide a safe and climate robust solution for these unprotected areas outside the dikes.

The pavilion is being heated by solar energy, cooled down with surface water and has different climate zones so energy is used efficiently. Toiletwater is being filtered and discharged in the surrounding water.

Samenvatting (Dutch description)

Onderzoek naar het effect van drijvende woningen op de waterkwaliteit

Het drijvend paviljoen is een van de bekendste drijvende constructies in Nederland. De waterkwaliteit is gemonitord op deze locatie met de onderwater-drone waar zuurstofgehalte, nitraat, geleidbaarheid en temperatuur is gemeten. Met een camera in de onderwater-drone zijn beelden gemaakt van bij en onder de constructie.
