Productive Amsterdam: Space for a New Economy (Europan 14)
Jonathan Woodroffe, Madir Shah
This book gives a detailed overview of the winning submissions to Europan 14, a biannual international architectural design competition. The central concepts, strategies, and aims of these and other noteworthy projects are examined, as well as the ability of European cities to create workplaces for multiplying and increasingly diverse populations. The locations selected for the competition are situated outside the historic centre of Amsterdam and represent a wide range of current social, economic, and spatial factors. They can potentially redefine multifaceted urban life in a new and revitalised manner, once more bringing together production, recreation, and living.
