Amsterdam’s Rokin boosts by temporary intervention in public space 2017-05-19T10:08:59+00:00

Project Description

The Rokin in Amsterdam is a street in the central area where for many years the construction of the north-south line subway takes place. In the fall of 2016, when the work of the subway line in the area is completed, the municipality will start with the renovation of the public space that is part of the “red carpet”, a public space from Amsterdam Central Station to the south Station.

Due to the long construction process, the area needs to return to the imagery of the inhabitants of Amsterdam. To achieve this objective, Urbanos proposed to temporarily transform the area and generate activities in the public space again to bring the attention back to this space. After many conversations with the shop owners and the municipality, we hope in the coming months to make a temporary installation that recreates the idea of ​​the red carpet and provides a place to rest and meet in the middle of a construction zone.
