1. Amsterdam, Eastern Docklands Architecture: Private Tour
Since the 70's, Amsterdam's Eastern Docklands has grown from a humble harbor into a popular residential area sporting a diverse and dazzling array of architecture. It is here where Amsterdam's urban development prospered throughout the 80's and 90's, entering the new millennium with a striking urban waterfront integrated into the area's industrial heritage. Visiting the twin islands of Java and KNSM will bring to the fore 2 sites united by a single concept – inspired by the city's rich history – yet the startling differences between both outcomes is impossible to miss. Discover how Borneo and Sporenburg succeeded in providing low-rise single-family houses within the same density (100 apartments per acre) usually marked by multi-storey building complexes. Then see how Riet Landen so brilliantly entwined the traffic junction at its heart with the remarkable park that envelops it.
