Amsterdam - second prize
Within an area characterized by a highly fragmented ownership that implies bizarre plot shapes in the case of plots grouping, the strategy consists of occupying the edges with clearly defined forms and working on the generated voids as extensions of the collective domain. This principle could be freely adapted to different plots shapes and, on a wider level, these voids could be organized in a future network. In this first intervention, inner freed-up space is the living core of the settlement: conceived as a semi-public space, here highly differentiated activities take place and discover a fertile meeting point. With the aim of being an alternative to dwellings blocks based on the exclusive presence of nuclear families, here a diversified three-dimensional mix of uses and typologies happens.
