Transforming public space of Amsterdam New West
Clients: Rietveld Academy in cooperation with Van Eesterenmuseum
Project: Students from the department of Inter-Architecture of the Rietveld Academy reflect on the public space of the Western Garden Cities. This modernist area has been planned by Van Eesteren in 1934 (AUP), has been built after World War II and is inhabited by people of today. The students developed new concepts for public space during the urban design course I’ve been teaching in the winter semester 2015. The projects offer new perspectives, new experiences and new services for Amsterdam New West.
The student design projects are exhibited at the Van Eesterenmuseum from April 1 until June 26 2016.
