Rhein Ruhr City - The hidden metropolis
The REGIONMAKER / RheinRuhrCity book accompanies the exhibition with the same name in the NRW-Forum Kultur und Wirtschaft in Dusseldorf 2002/2003. The exhibition as well as this book wants to generate a discussion on the possible future of the RhineRuhr region in Germany - at the moment that large-scale items again become part of the architectural domain. The REGIONMAKER has been developed as an innovative planning device and has been applied to the agglomeration at Rhine and Ruhr. This most radical and far-sighted analysis of RheinRuhrCity as well as the development of the REGIONMAKER have been made possible through a collaboration between the Dutch planning office MVRDV, various academic institutions and highly recommended international professionals.
