Amsterdam Structure  Plan  1991  


Living in  Amsterdam  North   “I  like  that  it’s  part  of  the  city  and  yet  feels  like  a  village.  All  the  green   space,  the  silence,  the  quaint  houses.  When  you  go  to  a  city  like   London  the  streets  are  crowded  and  everyone  is  moving  towards  a   des7na7on.  In  Noord  people  are  more  chill,  they  move  in  different   ways.”     “No,  not  at  all.  Without  wan7ng  to  be  offensive,  but  for  me  a   Noordeling  is  someone  who  goes  to  the  Dirk  van  den  Broek  to  get  his   month’s  supply  of  Best  Beer  and/or  viewx.”     “I  am  trying  to  show  how  much  immigrants  feel  insecure  and  lost  in   the  Noord.  They  are  in  a  corner,  and  cannot  help  but  feel  like   outsiders.  Even  thought  they  might  be  third  or  even  fourth  genera7on   living  in  Noord.  They  become  foreigners  both  in  Amsterdam  and   Istanbul.  They  are  in  between  personae,  and  don’t  know  where  they   belong.”  


Open City  Plan  1996  


Anchors of  the  IJ,  1995   -­‐  new  strategic  memorandum  called  Anchors  of  the  IJ  was  passed  by  the  city  for  the   redevelopment  of  the  Waterfront.  It  compartmentalized  the  IJ  axis  allowing  separate   parts  of  the  south  bank  to  be  independently  developed.     -­‐  The  plan  proposed  to  build  on  exis7ng  island  structures  with  a  phased  development   which  would  start  at  the  outer  edges  and  work  towards  the  Central  Sta7on  area.       -­‐  This  approach  allowed  for  development  of  the  master  plans  for  smaller  and  more   manageable  areas.  It  also  shiYed  the  program  from  office  development  to  a   centered  focus  on  housing  with  public  buildings,  where  public  spaces  represented   “anchors”  at  key  loca7ons  that  were  apart  of  a  larger  framework  of  infrastructure   development.
