Zuidas is a business district in the South of Amsterdam. Located to both sides of the A10 ringroad, the area will act as the missing link between the housing areas to the north and south of the motorway. Besides office and residential highrises, the spatial programme of Zuidas also includes Zuid WTC station, the future stop for highspeed trains to London and Paris. The first part of Zuidas to be realized was a high-density office district with projects by internationally renowned architects. At its heart stands the CIRCL pavillion, a circular building with semi-public roof garden and bar, initiated by ABN AMRO bank. Around the corner lies Gershwin, the lat-est area to be realized. It features a.o. the latest starchitecture stunt by MVRDV: the Valley, a mixed-use highrise complex with mirrored outside and quarry-style inside.
On this tour, you’ll hear about the development and mobility concepts of Zuidas, the iconic architecture, but also about the various approaches to sustainabiltiy.
