Debate High Rise III SOLD OUT

With the third debate in the High Rise series we will look at high rise in a broader perspective, leaving the Sluisbuurt and crossing the IJ river to the Northern banks.

Tickets: SOLD OUT

Speeding up or slowing down, densifying or thinning out, raising or lowering? Many visionary and/or turbulent plans for the southern banks of the IJ-river have been made, criticised, and realised. Just as big of a transformation awaits the northern banks of the IJ-river: from Waterland, the Oranjesluizen and Draka in the east to Buiksloterham, the NDSM, the northern IJ-waters and the connection to Zaanstad in the west. Which qualities should these densified and thinned out areas have, and what is the role of the connecting areas that are capable of turning the banks into one whole?

The evening begins with a column of our Architect in Residence, Peter Defesche, who will look back at the first two debates and all the writings that have appeared on the topic. At the same time he will lead the way to a perspective transcending the Sluisbuurt and the alleged generation gap. His introduction will be followed by three interviews with a landscape architect, an urban planner and an architect and ending with a debate with the speakers and the audience.
