Amsterdam, Eastern Docklands Architecture: Private Tour

1. Amsterdam, Eastern Docklands Architecture: Private Tour

Since the 70's, Amsterdam's Eastern Docklands has grown from a humble harbor into a popular residential area sporting a diverse and dazzling array of architecture. It is here where Amsterdam's urban development prospered throughout the 80's and 90's, entering the new millennium with a striking urban waterfront integrated into the area's industrial heritage. Visiting the twin islands of Java and KNSM will bring to the fore 2 sites united by a single concept – inspired by the city's rich history – yet the startling differences between both outcomes is impossible to miss. Discover how Borneo and Sporenburg succeeded in providing low-rise single-family houses within the same density (100 apartments per acre) usually marked by multi-storey building complexes. Then see how Riet Landen so brilliantly entwined the traffic junction at its heart with the remarkable park that envelops it.

Amsterdam: New Ijburg District Private Bike Tour

2. Amsterdam: New Ijburg District Private Bike Tour

Discover the new Ijburg district of Amsterdam by bike. Consisting of 6 artificial islands in the city’s former harbor mouth close to the Eastern Docklands, Ijburg is planned to be a residential neighborhood of 45,000 inhabitants, with the aim to create a standard for new development elsewhere in the country. At the moment Ijburg is home to about 20,000 people, and touring by bike is the best way to explore. One of the highlights you will discover is the Steigereiland (Pier Island), based on the “Collage City Concept” and consisting of 8 neighborhoods, each with its own individual character. Admire colorful contemporary architecture and a water neighborhood of floating dwellings. Explore the grid-like streets of Haveneiland (Harbour Island), designed to balance order and chaos. Cycle over at least 10 new bridges, some dedicated to pedestrians and cyclists only. Be dazzled by designs from Dutch and international architects, such as Nicolas Grimshaw and Wilkinson Eyre, and appreciate the dynamcs of their new vision.
