|Title:||DESA1002 'Continuous City' <Alex Moore>|
Architecture & Allied Arts
|Abstract:||I designed a Creativity Hub - a combination of gallery, library and discussion space designed to stimulate a flow of ideas. The facade is designed to be a more organic and modern re-interpretation of the traditional Amsterdam facade, appropriating the idea of the Amsterdam windows. I picked up on this idea because windows are such an important part of Amsterdam architecture, because of the often cloudy or rainy weather, getting light into a building is very important. I felt that questioning the use and form of a window was something that needed to be done to make sure the building reflected its modern use. The function I believe suits Amsterdam well, as community indoor spaces are important because of the climate. Additionally the city needs to support creative sources to ensure Amsterdam continues to be the funky place it is today.|
