content Mobility has an enormous impact on city culture and urban development. Cities are primarily perceived from a moving perspective. Our experience of the city is to a large extent determined by infrastructure and traffic flows. Mobility is not solely a logistical or technocratic challenge in the modern city, but also a key conditioning factor in urban development. This book presents a kaleidoscopic impression of what urbanity is under today’s conditions in Rotterdam. design The book is layered, written essays alternate with image essays. The book uses word and image to examine the social significance of mobility. Relevant themes from the essays are visualised on the title pages. A photo from the project 'Mobility' is used for the cover. Besides designing of the book, image editing and two image essays are included. A selection of pages is shown.

What is the experience of movement in a city? design - road signs, a pre-planned structure in relation to the chewing gum map, a structure that evolves from movement - pavement and tile patterns in relation to the texture of the pavement - traffic signs on one road - poles in a neighbourhood - colour pallet of movement Essay published in 'In transit'
