WaterNet pontoons, Rotterdam, 1998-2001
The city of Rotterdam inaugurated WaterNet, a transport network on the River Maas, in 1998. Part of the project was the construction of 25 pontoons along the river for the mooring of water taxis, party ships and the water bus. The brief for these floating WaterNet stations required a beacon (a bus stop sign), an information panel, and shelter and seating for passengers.
