As an urban planner working with Franz Ziegler Studio in The Netherlands, we mapped a detailed proposal for changing the main city corridor of Assen, NL
The small town of Assen in The Netherlands is looking to densify the town center with the new station. This needs upgrading and revitalizing the main city boulevard also considering minimum changes to existing infrastructure.
Adding strategic new program and projects along the main city corridor, densifying commercial spaces and widening the boulevard while re-ordering private and public transport.
Role: Urban Designer at Studio Franz Ziegler, Rotterdam
The studio developed a scaled model of the entire boulevard, resulting in a 10M model which served as a great tool for common discussions and understanding

We presented the design and discussed the minute details with the citizens at evenings in the City Hall of Assen

Assen is developing a city boulevard, and Studio Franz Ziegler was appointed to supervise the development. I got involved in the project when it was at it's deliverables stage - we made the essential drawings like plans, maps and sections.
This is my first city-scaled strategic urban planning project and learnt a lot, especially about the Dutch culture of Urbanism
