The research presented here provides a top-down perspective of the Rotterdam urban landscape and its opportunities for urban agriculture. This perspective aims to be instrumental in bottom-up entrepreneurial driven realisation of urban agriculture projects in cities in industrialised countries in general and Rotterdam in particular, firstly by uncovering and mapping opportunities for urban agriculture and secondly by showing their potential through design case studies. The article will focus on the definition of opportunities and its underlying rationale.
