Workshop: Human Scale in Newly Built Projects

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Considering that cities are made by people, it is remarkable how often we forgot how to design new urban fabric for people.

How do we get a human scale and a sense of place woven into new development? This session will provide participants with valuable lessons and best practices from Amsterdam and the Netherlands on how to integrate the eye-level experience into new built projects, both in design and development process.

Leaving from the main entrance of Pakhuis de Zwijger, this session will take place at Floor 6, a short walk from the conference venue. Along the way, participants will experience some of Amsterdam's new developments firsthand and gather fodder for discussion!
