AMS Strategic project: Amsterdam 2050 Urban Makeover

Prize: Fellowship awarded competitively


The Chair of Complex Projects, Department of Architecture at Delft University of Technology, teamed up with AMS Institute, the municipality of Amsterdam and KAAN Architecten to focus on the theme AMSTERDAM 2050. The Graduate students and teachers of the Chair reimagined what nine different sites of the metropolitan area of Amsterdam would be in 2050, based on a critical analysis of current findings and practices in the city. In AMS Mid-City Studio, the focus has been on ‘growth’ and ‘change’: growth of numbers of inhabitants and tourists, and change of energy, mobility, health and leisure concepts. There is an extra demand for new housing and housing types, new workspaces, new infrastructure and urban facilities and for different uses and management of public spaces.
