Amfora Amsterdam: sustainable innercity

2007 – 2011 | Amfora Amsterdam is an ‘unsolicited proposal’ for a radically different, sustainable development of the innercity of Amsterdam. Amfora solves spatial, environmental and traffic problems by building tunnels underneath the canals in the town centre. The tunnels accommodate parking space, sports & leisure, building extensions and filter exhaust fumes using state-of-the-art technology. Michel Heesen was part of the design and research team in commission of ZJA/Strukton
