Cli­mate Resi­li­ent Amsterdam

Resi­li­ence is a big issue in the Neth­er­lands. Accord­ingly, the muni­cip­al­ity of Amsterdam stim­u­lates rain­wa­ter reten­tion pro­jects and the de-sealing of urban sur­faces, but also pro­motes pub­lic trans­port and bik­ing over car traffic.

The new can­opy of the Cent­ral Sta­tion leads rain­wa­ter dir­ectly into the river instead of the sew­er­age sys­tem. Under the can­opy lies a pub­lic trans­port hub with bus ter­minal, pas­sen­ger hall and the entrance to a new metro line. This line cre­ates a super-fast con­nec­tion through the city centre to Amsterdam-Zuid and Zui­das. In this dis­trict, there are innov­at­ive designs of pub­lic space and polder roof gar­dens that fea­ture smart rain­wa­ter buf­fer­ing solu­tions. The sus­tain­able and cir­cu­lar CIRCL pavil­lion loc­ated at the heart of the area,  serves as a hub for all green initiatives.

On this tour, we‘ll high­light sus­tain­able mobil­ity, bike park­ing facil­it­ies and rain­wa­ter reten­tion pro­jects, all aim­ing at the cre­ation of a resi­li­ent city.
