AMS AMS MID-CITY graduation show

On July 12th, the students of the Complex Projects AMS MID-CITY exhibited their work in the Orange Hall of the TU Delft Faculty of Architecture. AMS MID-CITY is the graduation studio of the Architectural Design Chair of Complex Projects (CP) and is part of AMS Institute’s project “Urban Makeover”.

A group of almost 80 students displayed group models sized 2.1×2.1 and individual projects representing the areas of Amsterdam Centraal, Amstel, Zuidoost, Sloterdijk, Zaanstad, Oud Zuid, Schiphol, and City Islands, with the objective to picture how these specific sites will look like in 2050. The projects had to take into account future technological developments or urban innovations in the field of mobility (self-driving solutions and electric vehicles), energy-water-waste resources (circular approach) and health facilities. Students came up with creative ideas such as an organ factory or a zero polluting inner-city energy production.

The itinerant exhibition was open in February this year and was held in the Zuiderkerk in Amsterdam earlier this June, until reaching TU Delft’s Faculty of Architecture in July.
