This year's Winter School of the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture was dedicated to living with all that lives in the city. Students explored the values and and future of the vast property of Rijkswaterstaat in the city of Amsterdam: the shoulders of the Ringway A10. In this booklet all models are brought together, presenting 19 solutions for the Ring A10.
The winning entry 'The Never Ending Forest' promised life for all, a public use of the shoulders and a healthy green character shining of on Amsterdam to passers by. Cis Apeldoorn (director Department of Environmental Planning and Sustainability, City of Amsterdam) and Rients Dijkstra (State Advisor Infrastructure), assisted the jury in their judgement.
We thank Rijkswaterstaat in the city of Haarlem, who will exhibit the models in their office from June 9 on. All models together make one circle representing 19 solutions for the Ringway A10. We hope to inspire all participant and visitors with the exhibition and this booklet that goes with it.
