Het Nieuwe Diep – The ‘Free Street’ of Amsterdam
In the area around the Nieuwe Diep, Zus is proposing a “small-scale mega structure” to connect the neighborhoods, people, plants and animals. The Spinoza Promenade and the Vrijstraat (or the Rue de Descartes) will be two public streets where people can live and work – the one organic and green, the other geometric and urban.
