Highlights

  • Explore the Eastern Docklands' superb modern architecture integrated into an historic setting
  • Learn about the cutting-edge concepts in waterfront development
  • Compare the twin islands of Java and KNSM
  • Discover Riet Landen's incredible juxtaposition of park, residential area, and traffic junction

Description

Since the 70's, Amsterdam's Eastern Docklands has grown from a humble harbor into a popular residential area sporting a diverse and dazzling array of architecture. It is here where Amsterdam's urban development prospered throughout the 80's and 90's, entering the new millennium with a striking urban waterfront integrated into the area's industrial heritage. Visiting the twin islands of Java and KNSM will bring to the fore 2 sites united by a single concept – inspired by the city's rich history – yet the startling differences between both outcomes is impossible to miss. Discover how Borneo and Sporenburg succeeded in providing low-rise single-family houses within the same density (100 apartments per acre) usually marked by multi-storey building complexes. Then see how Riet Landen so brilliantly entwined the traffic junction at its heart with the remarkable park that envelops it.
