Rechargeable Area’s, Amsterdam

The ‘Purple zone’ is a bufferzone for users and visitors of the NDSM yard. The zone forms a transition zone between the street level and the facades of the physical construction of the NDSM shipyard; a transition area between the public and creators of the NDSM yard.

We call it a Rechargeable Area. An area that has been developed and completed on the basis of flexibility, mobility and change. An area in which to ‘retreat and discover’ are the most important elements. The content consists of mobile green (trees and gardens) and containers that are besides storage also exhibition spaces for changing exhibitions. The containers also serve as pedestals were spatial work can be exhibited.
