Amsterdam Signal Energy and Telecom Building
MOPET architects designs a Signal, Energy and Telecom Building at the ‘Zuid-as’ in Amsterdam.
The Zuid-as is a large, rapidly developing business district in the city of Amsterdam. The building will provide traction and energy for it’s metro system, including the new constructed ‘Noord-Zuidlijn’. The Noord-Zuidlijn is Amsterdam’s mayor infrastructural project and will connect the northern district with the city in the near future. MOPET expressed the force that the building will provide by a powerful, robust appearance that refers to the sheet piles which are being uses for constructing the underground metro system. It is located in a green zone, surrounded by an extensive network of infrastructure (Amsterdam’s ring road, metro and railways) and adapts to that infrastructural landscape by becoming the landscape itself. The building will be operational in 2014.
