FreewaySpace

International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam 2003"Recognizing mobility and the freeway as a collective challenge offers new perspectives for planners and politicians. Can the no man's land that envelopes the existing roadways be transformed into a space with an identity? Can we find additional uses for the ground upon which the freeway lies? Can roads be turned into architecture and architecture into roads? How can landscape, city and infrastructure be more optimally interwoven? Is the concept of a 'scenic highway' possible in the Netherlands?

The world has seen a dramatic change in its roadways and countryside in recent decades; the way in which this 'landscape of mobility' can be guided, managed and designed is the central issue to be presented at the first International Architecture Biennial Rotterdam."
