Haven-Stad, Plan BClose

In 2017, the municipality of Amsterdam announced the arrival of a new neighborhood with 40,000 to 70,000 homes in the port area. This “Haven-Stad” thus suddenly became the largest city expansion in the Netherlands. Two years later the plans are under discussion. The existing Amsterdam approach seems unsatisfactory.

Over the fall of 2018, Daan Roggeveen (MORE), David Mulder van der Vegt (XML) and Michiel Hulshof (Tertium) worked with students of the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture to develop an alternative plan for Haven Stad, addressing urgent questions: how do we combine living and industry within one district? Can infrastructure be leading in this development? And how do we involve all stakeholders in this plan? During an evening in Pakhuis de Zwijger, the Havenstad 2050 team will present an alternative design strategy and will talk to entrepreneurs, politicians, designers and builders.

Speakers include Marieke van Doorninck, Alderman for Spatial Development at the City of Amsterdam; Koen Overtoom, CEO Port of Amsterdam; Madeleine Maaskant, director Amsterdam Academy of Architecture; Kees Christiaanse, founder KCAP; Kees Noorman, Director of ORAM, Hilde Blank, AM / BVR, Jeroen in ’t Veld, director RebelGroup and students of the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture.
