With some fresh town planning ideas for the city of Rotterdam, Rory Hyde and his crew set about altering local government project signs to display “more sustainable, social or exciting” ideas.  The Australian freelance architect, currently based in Amsterdam had a number of different ideas for the Dutch city including; an algae plantation power generation project within disused harbor space; transforming a local park lake into an artificial hot-spring for the homeless (heated using excess heat from a nearby hospital); and turning the ‘Blunderput’ looter-plagued-budget-blowing carpark into a wishing well – where tourists can throw money into the car park and pay for it’s development “one wish at a time”.  Some great ideas.
