Equipped with brand-new biz cards and lots of new contacts we continue the search for answers to the question: what to do with all the empty office spaces - a typology which usually doesn't work with easy conversions into residentials

My time as a correspondent for the Online Magazine Urban Times
is going well: 21 articles published so far, all of which have been received very well. I'm enjoying myself, and as the topics tend to circle around co-creation and collaboration

to kickstart a social project
in Amsterdam next week. More on this come soon.

Unfortunately it turns out that the KIEM project in collaboration with temp.architecture.urbanism was not what the city of Amsterdam was looking for - the jury report is available online (in
Dutch): PRIJSVRAAG TIJDELIJK GEBRUIK SLUISBUURT
. The winning concept proposes a Zeilwagenpark: to use the land for racing with kite buggies. We congratulate the winners and say: Make your own piece of Amsterdam! (there's is still a chance as Zeeburgereiland is much bigger than the tender area) to be continued...
Latest project in collaboration with temp.architecture.urbanism is online (in English): KIEM / TEMPLoT
. Make your own piece of Amsterdam!
