Moving forest in Amsterdam

CATEGORY: city + design + paisaje + ⚐ EN

Here is a very nice example of Dutch attitude to public space.

In a picture – is a square in front of supermarket’s company headquarters that I accidentally met in Amsterdam. Just young trees planted in shopping trolleys. You can easily move them, design square, make or remove shadow of trees, just play.

Very nice and very simple.

Genial. En la mísma línea: lo único que me gustó del Forum de Barcelona fue que los bancos “estaban sueltos” y la gente los movía y agrupaba a su estilo. Dudo que fuera un aspecto de diseño, pero funcionó de maravilla.

[ Great. The only thing I liked at the Forum site in Barcelona was something like that: the benches where not fixed to the ground, and people moved them around as they liked. Don't think it was “designed” so, but, hey, just worked. ]

Damn, as if i missed the urban play!

we were there around that time and would of loved to see it for ourselves.

This type of thing is typical of the Dutch in my opinion. Always thinking outside of the box.

Thanks for sharing
