Urban renewal plan
A large-scale urban renewal project is in progress in the Reimerswaalbuurt in Osdorp, a neighborhood situated at the periphery of Amsterdam. The ambitious plan was made under the supervision of the Architecten Cie. Nine building complexes will be realized with broad streets and auto-free squares. Mecanoo designed the first complex which includes a school, sports hall, pre-school playrooms, a children’s day-care center, a community center, 51 apartments and 21 single family homes. The neighborhood will be enriched with good social housing situated in a network of pleasant and safe streets, squares and public green space with gathering places to socialize in. The result of the fruitful cooperation between the developer Ymere, the school board, design studio Makkink & Bey and artist Elspeth Pikaar is a richly detailed social housing and multi-functional education complex. Mecanoo’s design example will set the stage for the other eight residential complexes.

‘In creating film one has to know how to take flight with light and understand the nature of its nature; to become a shadow and converse with ambiguity touching it but never gripping it; to understand the concept of contrasting harmony and how opposites bow to each other and sometimes dance in no less capacity than utterly consumed and locked souls; to travel with raw sound, whispers and sometimes silence itself and meet enchantment yet sense the most silent scream to be the loudest; to adopt the gentle breeze and learn a lesson or two on the prolific powers of gentle sways; to know how to become absolutely drunk and utterly intoxicated on a good conversation; to be able to ride chaos and make good sense of it; to use ice cold that is actually hot and make it unarguably cool; to know men and women who wear their hearts on their faces; to converse with the aura of objects and discover the person within each; to erase the line between genius and insanity and discover how to inexhaustibly deconstruct and reconstruct souls and suspend time in between, …’ Khalid Nahhas.
