AMSTERDAM PLACEMAKING WEEK

Oct 12, 2017

The official start to Placemaking Week in Amsterdam began with Paul attending a study tour to the university city of Delft (population 110,000) in the south-west of The Netherlands.

The theme of the visit was “Healing an Urban Scar” after the recent sinking of the city’s above ground railway line, which has provided redevelopment opportunities along a 2.5 km section of the city centre previously segregated by the rail corridor.

Delegates were spilt into groups for three seperate cycling tours of areas around Delft – the university precinct, the historic (old town) and “suburban” Delft.

The resulting placemaking session brought delegates together to share their ideas about how six “spaces” around the new railway station are functioning as “places” and what short and long term things could be done to improve these six “spaces”.

If you would like more information,  have any questions or simply want to know more about our placemaking capabilities please contact us.
