Using Arup’s Cities Alive principles, this design studio project focused on urban Green Infrastructure on a live site in Amsterdam. The site was located in the Westerpaark area of Amsterdam. currently an industrial and commercial area that has been identified as the next high density housing development zone. My project concentrated on the main road that bisected the site and I wanted to create a solution that would unify the neighbourhood, whilst also providing a recreational area. The aim was to use landscape to promote good social, economical and environmental dynamics. The title was inspired by the flatness of Amsterdam, and my project injecting some slopes and levels to the site.

Commercial Area; green roofs

The residential streets were angled so as to create drama and limited views of the park. The housing layout has been chosen to be similar to neighbouring Amsterdam areas, with a communal garden courtyard space set within the building. A pedestrian shopping street was proposed linking the two metro stations, with plaza areas to encourage active frontages. Reduced traffic in the residential area is intended to encourage safe walking and cycling. The road is covered by a park. It is designed to provide a mixture of direct routes and meandering routes. Water and different types of landscape are included to add variety to the neighbourhood. To maximise the purpose of the park, parking is built under the slopes, adjacent to the road, with small commercial properties built within. These areas are fronted by a plaza and body of water, to promote social active areas for residents.

The border needed renovating and new planting - the aim was to inject colour and all year round interest. A challenge as the border was rubbly and heavy clay. The clients requested a low maintenance border since they were time poor, but keen to learn how to garden. PRODUCED BY AN AUTODESK EDUCATIONAL PRODUCT
