LIVING LAB, our proposal for E15 ‘Productive Rotterdam’


We imagine Vierhavensblok as a place where knowledge, leisure, culture, technology and nature come together.

Our vision is to create a continuous vibrant space that flows from ground level to the top, from the inside to the outside, with a sequence of outdoor ateliers, patios, shared and private terraces.

How do we make better cities?


UP4 invited to talk about the future of Buiksloterham at the festival WeMakeThe.City, the largest city festival in Europe. All over the world, including Amsterdam and its metropolitan region, cities are growing rapidly. This growth causes serious problems concerning, for instance, climate, safety, affordable housing, and health. The key question is: what kind of city do we want to live in, in five, ten or fifteen years time? See more here.

UP4 presenting at the Productive City event


We have been invited to present on the 18th of April in Amsterdam.

Giovanni Lavanna will be there to present our Makers Neighbourhood project, and discuss the design principles of the productive city. See more here.
