Construction Site for an Ark is the proposal of Tako Reijenga and Roeland Otten in the contest A Design For Places Left After Planning by Atelier HSL and SKOR.
We chose a location, triangled by railtracks, near the Rotterdam zoo Blijdorp, near where we both lived.
Our proposal was to start a construction site for an ark, with it's entrance towards the zoo. Trying to put in perspective big infrastructural projects such as the realization of the new
hi-speed railtrack, we thought this basic multi-religious(!) symbol would make sense in a cultural divers city like Rotterdam. With the construction of the ark, to be built in the timeframe
of the HSL track, we thought to tell a topical story, about consuming and rising sealevels. Not realized.
