(m)Appening rotterdam
The koopgoot is the perfect example where private and public space are dubiously
intertwined, by picknicking in the middle of the "koopgoot" we try to unravel this
hybrid condition.


The "koopgoot" is the privately controlled space outfitted in public drag.
Its spatial configurations and materialisation hinges between a public street and a privately exploited
passage, its rich use of materials, detailing and ornamentation do not remotely remind us of
the basic and harsh public governed streets. There are no street benches, garbage bins or even
a ledge to sit and rest on. But its access system from the main subway hub underneath the
coolsingel in Rotterdam and the important pedestrian connection it makes between the two
segregated parts of the city centre tell an other story.

This supposedly public street exploited by private bodies has a perverse backlash on the public
behaviour allowed on the "public street". The street is diminished to a mono-functional controlled
zone where only the typical behaviour and actions of the consumer are allowed. The urban
experience of confrontation with the unexpected and the strange is reduced to a minimum
to supply a pleasant and safe shopping experience.
This is facilitated by private security guards that survey the street and shops, they remove
everybody that doesn't fit the behavioural profile of the shopper. The only allowed conduct is
walking stopping for a short moment, to stop and glare inside a shopping window and move
on or step inside to shop.

By superimposing the innocent unity of picnicking we test the social rules of the urban
spatial regime that dictate the "koopgoot". As we test more types of places throughout the
city's public realm through the implementation of happening type events we try to understand
the local spatial and social configurations of Rotterdam.
