1. Pioneering sustainable urban design: the floating pavilion

Blue21’s first big project, the Floating Pavilion in Rotterdam, is a standout example of sustainable urban design. Since its creation in 2010, this incredible structure has been a hub of innovation, seamlessly fitting into the city’s skyline. It’s not just a building – it’s a place for events and exhibitions, showcasing the latest in sustainable technology. The pavilion’s recent move back to the RDM campus in 2022 marks a new chapter, inspiring even more sustainability initiatives for the future. Its relocation underscores Blue21’s commitment to adaptability and longevity, ensuring its continued impact for years to come. By engaging with the local community, Blue21 fosters a sense of ownership and pride in the pavilion, strengthening its role as a symbol of sustainable urbanization.

2. Empowering communities: Blue21's eco-homes in Delft

In another groundbreaking project, Blue21 teamed up with local citizens and the city of Delft to create sustainable floating homes in Delft’s Harnaschpolder. This community-driven effort is all about collaboration and innovation, letting residents shape their own living spaces. With careful planning, six eco-friendly homes emerged, showing what can happen when people work together. From energy-saving systems to decentralized utilities, these homes are a model for green living. And beyond just buildings, they’ve helped build a strong sense of community and environmental stewardship in Delft. The project’s success demonstrates the power of community-driven initiatives to address local challenges and create lasting impact. By prioritizing inclusivity and diversity, Blue21 ensures that all voices are heard in the development process, fostering a sense of belonging and collective ownership among residents.

Our commitment to innovation is evident in our approach to sustainable projects. Alongside the Floating Pavilion and Delft’s eco-homes, initiatives like the Innozowa Floating Solar Project and the Bluelands Floating Office prototype showcase our dedication to smart solutions too. Both projects feature patented innovative technologies, focusing on water management, solar energy optimization, and modular design for eco-friendly spaces. Situated at TU Delft Green Village, the Bluelands project particularly underscores our efforts to create scalable, environmentally conscious workspaces on water, pioneering a new era of sustainable urban development. The Innozowa Floating Solar Project, aimed at revolutionizing water management and solar energy, demonstrates our commitment to pushing the boundaries of sustainable innovation. Moreover, Blue21’s partnership in Space@Sea, a research project on multi-use floating islands funded by the European Commission, highlights our role in shaping the future of floating developments.

Charting new waters: inspiring examples by others

Looking beyond Blue21’s achievements, it’s essential to showcase successful projects by other organizations as examples of what can be achieved in floating developments. For instance, projects like the Nassauhaven Floating Houses in Rotterdam and Schoonschip in Amsterdam have proven the feasibility and benefits of living on water.

Although these projects were not undertaken by Blue21, they provide valuable insights into the potential of floating urbanization. By studying their successes and identifying areas for improvement, Blue21 can refine its approach to deliver even better outcomes. We aim to enhance our projects, making sustainable living on water accessible to both high and medium-income individuals and even social housing. Through our expertise and dedication, Blue21 aims to elevate the standard of floating developments, ensuring that they meet the needs of a diverse range of communities.
