De Brakke Grond

Location: Nes, Amsterdam, NL

Floor Area: 8000 sqm

De Brakke Grond is an existing cultural institution on the Nes, an important cultural enclave for Dutch speakers in the historic inner-city of Amsterdam. Their goal is to showcase emerging talent from the Neth- erlands and Flanders, providing an international platform for both visual and performing arts.

The following themes were key in the formulation of our design proposal;
Continuity (and discontinuity) in the built heritage of the city,
Cultural spaces that facilitate participation,
Everyday spaces - from familiar domestic proportions to the monumental scale of industry,
Inflexible spaces - spaces that can accommodate varied use, forming a backdrop of permanence to a con- stantly shifting cultural programme.
