SPcitI is working together with the team of the Atelier Rijksbouwmeester and the Municipality of Amsterdam on developing a set of strategic “spatial starting points” (Nota van Uitgangspunten) for the future of the Marineterrein, a historical site in the heart of Amsterdam. The goal is to create a breeding ground for an International Innovation District with an adaptive development strategy. The project aims to embed the former secret Navy area into the eastern part of the city center, by using the magnificent marine and cultural site features, and by opening the area for everyone.
In collaboration with PUCRS’ Nucleo de Estudo da Cidade and IFHP, the first 1 day seminar has been a very successful kick off of the Co-operatives LAB. The issue at stake confirmed to be extremely relevant within informal housing upgrade and deserves a proactive follow up in the coming months. Meanwhile the first platform of important stakeholders is set up.
SPcitI took actively part into the first Public Spaces International Congress at FAU-PUCRS in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Four intense days of debate and knowledge sharing about a critical topic that is getting more and more attention concerning quality of collective shared spaces.
The commitment of the Gothenburg Ringön workshop (2013) is bearing its first results. The steering group formed by the municipality and the local entrepreneur is regularly gathering, the public space along Jämmalmsgatan has been refurbished, the top of a warehouse has been turned into a gallery and meeting centre, whilst a group of artists is giving a new switch to the area.
