Urban Renewal Revisited

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a workshop, seminar, course or other meeting


Architects and critics talk about their analysis of the urban renewal in the Oude Westen neighbourhood; the design, the use of public space and the social change. Lidwine Spoormans (TU Delft), Endry van Velzen (De Nijl architecten) and Tim Verlaan (UvA) wrote an article about the historical and contemporary meaning of the ‘stadsvernieuwing’. Roxane van Hoof (Studio Verter) and Charlie Koolhaas explored the neighbourhood by mapping the architecture and street life. Jurian Voets graduated with a proposal – Intense Stad – for the neighbourhood, including a revision of the urban renewal. Under the moderation of JaapJan Berg, they will discuss their statements on the future of the Oude Westen.
