The construction of ‘Maasvlakte 2’ marks a significant expansion of the port of Rotterdam. It is a Dutch success story worth telling. Together with consultancy company Hutspot, I designed and created an interactive model that shows how coherent control over the business case, the organization, substantive knowledge of complex cases and the surrounding stakeholders made it possible for Maasvlakte 2 to be built and be succesful.
The story of Maasvlakte 2 is complex and has many different perspectives. The best way to make it understandable is to create a logical context using a visual model as the foundation. This model is packed with multimedial stories of notable developments during the project. The interactive product was being used internally in the organization to secure knowledge and celebrate the project’s success. It has also been presented to the public to share insight and knowledge with people working in complex infrastructural projects like Maasvlakte 2.
