Six design teams drew on the Amsterdam of the future. The result of this design manifestation can be seen from 1 October in the OBA at the Oosterdok in the exhibition Thuis in de stad, Amsterdam 2050 in beeld.

At home in the city, Amsterdam 2050 in pictures  shows how the existing space in the city of the future can be better utilized and what that can yield. The designs, which provide input for the environmental vision, are inspiring and sometimes confrontational. They are not concrete plans that are actually being implemented, but ideas for a new layout of the city. They are developed around three characteristics of Amsterdam:

City around the center (Gooiseweg and Overtoom - Lelylaan)
City on the water (North bank of the IJ)
City on the landscape and rail (Southeast and Nieuwe Meer)

Stop by, view the designs and let us know what you think. What's good about it? A little less? What are you missing or could be better? Leave your comment and contribute to the future of Amsterdam.

October 1 - November 12
OBA Oosterdok | 1st floor

This exhibition was realized in collaboration with the Municipality of Amsterdam. ARCAM organized the public program around the design event.
