Zuidas

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 in-side 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.
