Amsterdam likes to profile itself as a city of the future. In order to achieve this, progress has to be made in the field of sustainable architecture and city life.
Collectively developed zero energy neighbourhoods and new urban concepts, such as the Circular City, contribute to the search for new approaches to sustainability. An area where this can already be seen is Buiksloterham in the north of Amsterdam.
Buiksloterham has the ambition to become the first “circular” neighbourhood in Amsterdam, with closed circuits for waste and energy. The city appointed plots for individually and collectively developed houses. Many examples of energy-neutral buildings are being realised, on private initiative or in development groups.
On this tour, you’ll visit the new developments, and find out about their architectural and sustainability concepts.
