Tools for a circular Amstel-Stad

The TOOL book is prepared by GXN to outline political frameworks and describe concrete goals, methods and tools for working with circular economy in urban planning and design in Amstel. Where as the CONTEXT book is prepared by students at the GXN visiting professorship at TU Delft Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, 2018/19 to outline a case study for upcycling in Amstel.

In 2015, the City of Amsterdam prepared a Vision and Action Agenda for the circular economy. Today, the City is finding new ways of integrating circular economy into urban planning as the Netherlands aim to become fully circular by 2050.

The city is recognised as a first mover in the transition to the circular economy, with these informative two books coexisting, the municipality can further prepare to seize the opportunities this paradigm presents.

Lead by Kåre Stokholm Poulsgaard, the GXN team delivers circular economy analysis and action plan for the Amstel-Stad development area.
