The barriers should then not be crossed by bridges, because that causes a poor connection with the underlying roads. The barriers should be ap- preciated, and integrated with other networks to ensure it is not a barrier anymore. The barrier then becomes a part of the whole area. Defining the edges - tool to make more connection to edges, facilities, and to create an intimate environment Definining space by creating edges is a well known traditional tool. It can be succesfully used in many designs. It generates awareness of the sur- roundings so I found this tool very useful.

It is well connected with AHOY and residential districts on the southeast part of IJsselmonde. Though there is no public transport line going to the staduim, but it will just take 20 minutes walking to that place. So there is no need to introduce new public transport lines in the regional scale. According to our vision of IJsselmonde, there will be a new Inter City station at the stadium to address the acivities of the island into the national scale. As a result, few people will come to use the station of Lombardijen. However, there will be a new hospital right next to the station, which will attract new groups of people. Lombardijen AHOY Railway Line As shown in the street view picture, the spacial quality of the station area is poor. The station is not visible from the street.

Integration of activities and the network - Strengthen the centrality of the station by providing more daily use economic facilities, to attract local people to come and stay. - To Avoid of competing with the other centralities, the local centrality of Lombardijen station should not add many similar functions like culture and sports. Generic value; Strengthen a local scale effect centrality of station centres (similar scale) - After weeks of stuck, I found that a local centrality neither form with a main facility like a station or a hospital, nor with functions of large scale effect like a commercial centre. Their influences reflect on how they serve the local people and how they are supported by its surrounding area. Not only motor traffic, but also non-motor routes are important. - The approach of this strategic plan could also be an example of other station based centralities in the similar scale.

Beside this, there is also space for some regional and national attractors, like Feyenoord and other professional sports. Sustainable phasing is possible, because the existing morphologies are not damaged in the design. Beside the sporting facilities, local people can also proﬁt from facilities like cinemas and restaurants around this sports area. The Stadium Park will be transformed into a livable and vital place for everyone.

central placesINTERnetworks / ACTING Stadium ParkLocation Condition Design Reflection Reflection When we look at the problem statements we have to do with connectivity, integration and activity. It is important to look two directional to the area: top down and bottom up. The solutions of these problem statements are sustainable at economical, social and environmental levels. These levels have all to do with each other. Looking from the top down the Stadium Park has a very interesting location in the network. It is situated next to a national railway network between important places on local and regional scale that are already connected with a metro. Next to this, it already is an important place with many sports activities. Some of them are nowadays attractive on a national scale. The area could be an important place in compare to other complementary places that are related with the network . These arguments are the reason that we take the chance to enforce this place inside the network by giving the place an Intercity, tram and metro station. This will also generate a better economical climate for residential and offices. The bottom up approach in the design of Stadium Park has to do with the spatial integration, where huge barriers are removed. In the design the activity is stenghtened by adding different mainly sporting facilities. The place will become more an attractor for different people from local, regional and national origin. Research shows us that the surrounding neighbourhoods demand for more sports facilities for young people. This is why there are many sporting fields, a youth center and other important public facilities designed in the plan. This area would function as a lo- cal meeting point between different people. The attraction of different groups of people with the relation with sport makes it an important and recognizable spot. Furthermore we can link the social sustainability to the economic vitality. A place with a fine social climate is also interesting for offices to settle in. Because of spatial and network interventions there is a better climate arround the area to exploit, think about residential and offices. This makes it possible to densify the centrality, whereby the surroundings will focus to it. This concentration will contravene the urban sprawl, what happened the last 30 years in the island. A specific example is visible by the recreational sporting fields of amateur clubs. They are not shifted to the edges of the city, because they have a certain value for the neighbourhood. Furthermore it would be strange if a sport area has not the quality to handle with the local amateur clubs.

central placesINTERnetworks / ACTING Evaluation on general themesSocial coherenceThe integral approach of new networks and redeveloping central places has the effectthat it becomes more attractive to live in the whole Island of IJsselmonde. Theinhabitants can profit from diverse centralities.Furthermore, a diversity of activities is brought together in one place and attracts adiverse group of people. It provides the possibility for people of the surrounding areasto meet at the centralities.Economic vitalityFirst we can link the social sustainability to the economic vitality. If we create a betterenvironment for people to live, it also becomes more attractive for offices and newinhabitants. This will generate a natural “knock on effect” for investments. Theeconomic activities are concentrated at different centralities, being well representedon both regional and national scale.Water storage (environmental sustainability)By strengthening the centralities, located mostly in the centre of urbanized areas, thesurroundings will focus inwards. This contravenes the urban sprawl, what happenedthe last 30 years in the island. Therefore a coherent framework of open landscape willbe remained. Open areas can be used for water storage.
