de architectengroep

Drechthoppen, Dordrecht, 2002

Considering the social and economic problems of the city, the architects were not convinced that this programme was appropriate. It was decided to approach the matter from a broader perspective and first develop a marketing strategy for Dordrecht and its neighbouring towns on the River Drecht. The hustle and bustle on the water is a characteristic of all the Drecht towns, but it is not being exploited adequately. The river confluence should become a single urban space, with the Stadswerven as the centre of the biggest public harbour of the Netherlands. ‘Drechthopping’ - river trips from one Drecht location to another - should become a new tourist attraction.
