Architecture Competition – AMSTERDAM: DE WALLEM HOSTEL

THEME: Amsterdam is a city with many identities. The largest urban development took place in the seventeenth century, in the period known as the Golden Age, when the Dutch capital became one of Europe’s commercial hubs of major interest. The five semicircular canals that surround the urban fence have always played a dominant role logistically and in terms of landscape. Besides the rivers there is much more: the bike paths make up a useful green Connection Network, museums and cafes line the streets of art and culture, green fields and windmills characterize the suburban areas. No shortage of contemporary architecture and transgression places, the red zone, much frequented by foreigners. This heterogeneity poses Amsterdam among the most visited tourist destinations of the Old Continent: tourism is one of the most developed areas, we intend to think of a traveler service hostel. The Beursplein is a border area between the neighborhood De Wallen and Nieuwe Zijede, a short walk from Dam Square. In this unresolved urban space we want to imagine a receptive structure, on hostel for turist that wil be to connect with main attractions of the city.
