For a vacant lot on Amsterdam’s Oosterdoks Eiland Urban Space Agency developed a concept for a village of Cultures: ODE place™ , in cooperation with old and new neighbors of the OosterDoksEiland (ODE), MAB development, PMB, Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam, Conservatorium Amsterdam, Double Tree by Hilton, &Samhoud Places, Hannekes Boom…sinds 1662, Tubino, Flowers by Joan Brenda, De Prael and…you?
ODE place™ is a tiny village with all those things still missing on Oosterdokseiland. Together with our neighbors, local entrepreneurs and visitors we shall turn this vacant lot into a warm place! En route between home and work, between art and culture, “stay in the city just a little longer!”
“It is clearly of great importance to make plans 20 years in advance”, but also consider just as much or more to think about- and do things for the next 20 days; or beter still what are we doing tomorrow?“
Design: Studio MAB & Urban Space Agency
Inspired by DeKalb Market in Brooklyn, N.Y., Christchurch Mall and “last but not least” Jane Jacobs & Fred Kent (pps.org)
