InDeSem 2013
Scale Matters

The neighbourhood IJwijk designed by OMA in Amsterdam was the design location for INDESEM 2013. Our project proposes to challenge the spatial experience and characteristic of the neighbourhood by changing the spatial parameters of the building blocks. The project forms an illustration of the influence of scale within each modification. Through different perspectives - the inhabitant, the collective and the municipality – the project illustrates how each configuration changes the perception, qualities and possibilities of the area. As an architectural exercise the project introduces new possibilities for: housing typologies, public space, semi-public space, infrastructure and potential landmarks.
