Amsterdam is a small metropolis with great ambitions. The city is a 'living lab', in which metropolitan tasks are both a challenge and an opportunity to develop and apply new insights, technologies and practices. Knowledge and innovation go hand in hand: gathering, reflecting and researching knowledge form the context within which new applications can be developed. The City of Amsterdam believes that a responsible capital invests in knowledge and innovation and continues to develop in this area. The partnership with AMS Institute helps us achieve this goal.

Project

Designing informal green spaces

Climate Resilient Cities

In the condensed urban area it can be a challenge to manage urban green infrastructure. This research develops design knowledge for integrating multiple ecosystem services of small and interstitial informal green spaces (IGS) in the condensed urban area.
