Plot 3A is part of a large urban redevelopment project on the Oosterdokseiland in Amsterdam. The master plan was drafted by Erick van Egeraat. Its concept is characterized by radials enabling the widest possible view of the water. The construction is a complex of 25,000 m² of shops, offices, social housing and luxurious apartments around a courtyard, enclosed by walls 10 floors high. The model garden is a green oasis of tranquillity between the quay and the railway line.

The brick walls are stretched around the building like a membrane and are alternately jointed vertically and horizontally. The master plan dictates cantilevered units to face the railroad, 15 metres above ground and supported by ‘origami’ columns for plot 3A. In the resulting void, a fitness centre’s floor will be suspended, offering a view over the railroad and the river IJ.
