East were commissioned by a research partnership between Delft University of Technology, the KEI Knowledge Centre for Urban Renewal (now Platform31) and De Nijl Architecten, to take part in a project entitled ‘Renewing city renewal’
East worked alongside TU Delft, De Smet Vermeulen Architecten, Ghent, 51N4E, Brussels, and Fusi & Ammann Architekten, Hamburg to compare and review contemporary approaches and methods to urban projects, and in particular were each asked to make urban and architectural proposals for a series of northern European sites. East were asked to improve the eastern edge of Amsterdam; containing some poorly connected late 19th century and early 20th century buildings at Amsterdam’s edges and the wonderful green spaces of Flevopark, where the reclaimed land merges with lake and river edges.
Following an exhibition and conference at TU Delft a publication was made that presents the results of the first project funded under the programme – a research partnership between Delft University of Technology, the KEI Knowledge Centre for Urban Renewal (now Platform31) and De Nijl Architecten, entitled Renewing city renewal.
