Research on Smart Roof 2.0 shows that blue-green roofs help in the insulation of buildings, the collection of rainwater, the greening of cities and the reduction of the urban heat island effect.
Exercise is becoming increasingly important and swimming is one of the best ways to improve your physical fitness and your technique. The inner harbour of Marineterrein Amsterdam seems to be the perfect place for a swim, but is the water clean enough? Research will determine whether swimming is an option here.
The themes that are currently important to the development of the Marineterrein are water, learning, living, mobility, and health. We are seeking solutions for the following social issues:
At the moment, the Marineterrein only has outdoor sports facilities and a track. The area is also part of the marked running trail ‘Rondje Oosterdok’. The quality of the water in the harbour is currently being examined with an eye toward turning it into a swimming harbour in the future.
The development of the Marineterrein and the rest of the area will be gradual. We will examine new approaches to construction logistics, such as via the water. No decisions have been made with respect to construction and no plans have been approved. Construction work is not likely to begin until 2021 at the earliest. No additional details can be provided at this time.
