Amstel III is a mono-functional office district. Many buildings are vacant; nobody wants to work here. This is due in part to a surplus of office spaces in Amsterdam and in part to bad planning. The design laid out here involves architectural interventions that leave space for a subsequent organic process of growth and flexible adaptation, based on the idea that turning mono-functional areas into multi-functional districts can yield healthy, vital urban environments.
