dc.description.abstract A waterfront revitalization research and design project for the development of a historical Dockland in the harbor of Rotterdam, the Netherlands was the area of study and focus. The Wilhelmina Pier is a forty-three acre site that was primarily used for harbor activities, but due to economical shifts in the last twenty years the site has been left in a state of decay and abandonment. Large scale economics like containerization and oil refineries are now the main driving force behind Rotterdam's international harbor success. This is also a study that informs the people who will come in contact with this report about the Dutch culture, and how their current societal needs will reflect upon a developed multi-use pier. The Wilhelmina pier has a lot of history, and a connection to North America because of the Holland America Line (H.A.L.) which had its operations here in the late 1800's to mid 1900's. This was a major immigration company who brought millions of people to the "new world." The site has great potential for a modern day society to be able to live, work, and recreate in the same area while enjoying the waterfront and many elements which portray the Dutch culture and history.
