De Imaginaire Verbouwing, Amsterdam

By talking to residents of Section Ne9en about imaginary interventions in their neighborhood, we can reveal the hidden urban development concepts and plans that exist among the residents. The inhabitants ideas can be strange, inappropriate, alienating and humorous. The plans may also be enforceable and based on a desire to improve the neighborhood really.




Platform 9 is a small work space, an observatory and a projection screen. The Platform will be placed nearby the several building spots. The platform is made up of two small containers, a staircase and a viewing balcony.

Inside the platform there is an opportunity for the residents to develop idea’s, parallel to the change in the neighborhood. The small studio has a large window that overlooks the already built or not built surrounding area.


The window turns the evening into a projection screen on which the shaped ideas of residents are presented through projections.
