The infrastructure of a city forms a tangle of streets, tunnels, routes and lines. But infrastructure can be much more than merely a functional necessity. Infratecture represents the actual integrated design and construction of infrastructure, with the aim of creating added sociological, cultural, ecological and economic value, in addition to being a functional solution for traffic flows. ‘Infratecture‘ shows how with the right mind set, genuine cooperation and sophisticated design, infrastructure can form a significant part of our everyday environment. This is depicted in an inspiring way, from 15 different perspectives, featuring 30 examples of international best practices.
This is a practically-oriented book about designing and building roads, intersections, squares, bridges and viaducts, but also about the design of biotopes, noise barriers, hubs and even speed. Marc Verheijen is a traffic engineer and architect. As a Infratecture lecturer, he is affiliated with the Hogeschool Rotterdam, and also works as an architect for Stadsontwikkeling Rotterdam, the city’s department of urban development.
