BlueCity, circular incubator

Osoite: Rotterdam, Netherlands
Hankeosapuolet: Superuse Studios and COUP
Valmistumisvuosi: 2015

Former subtropical swimming oasis has got a new life: innovative, sustainable and circular entrepreneurs have settled down between slides and hot tubs to give new meaning, function and value to 12.000 square meters of deserted swimming pool. Superuse Studios and COUP have transformed the building as circular as possible, re-using old elements and materials both from within the swimming pool as from other abandoned buildings, using Oogstkaart.

BlueCity is partner in two European projects: Plastic Twist, which aims to revalue recycled plastic, using blockchain technology. And Wastefew (Waste Food-Energy-Water Urban Living Labs) which aims to map and substantially reduce waste in the food-energy-water nexus in cities across three Europe, Africa, and South America.

BlueCity bases its activities mostly on the principles of the blue economy: they work with local products, believe in cooperation instead of competition, and create endless circles of value.
BlueCity is an international icon of circular economy, a national platform for circular entrepreneurs, and a very visible local accelerator that empowers circular entrepreneurs and inspires citizens.
