The realisation of The Splash was a HUGE team effort. As with any type of social design, the input of various stakeholders was included in the design process in all phases of the project. From strategy, design to implementation: without the neighbourhood, surrounding entrepreneurs, the landscape architect, developer and the municipality of Rotterdam the Splash would not have been what it is today.
However, at the end of the project all these different perspectives and needs fade to the background. To show you how complex, but also how satisfying this proces of co-creation is, we interviewed several people involved throughout the proces on their relation to the work. Because in the end these are the stories that matter!
