Stampa Stratify | Designing the Urban Contemporaneity is a workshop of architecture and urban design organized by AutonomeForme that will be held in Amsterdam 1- 5 July 2015.The project area of the workshop is located between the Central Station and Funenpark. Some of the most interesting contemporary architecture pieces of Amsterdam are situated along the railways, such as the interventions by Jo Coenen, Herman Hertzberger, 3xN, Rem Koolhaas/OMA, Renzo Piano, Ben van Berkel/UNStudio, René van Zuuk, Koen van Velsen, West 8, Hans Kollhoff, Erick van Egeraat, Delugan Meissl architects, MVRDV, Benthem Crouwel Architects, Powerhouse Company and many others.

In the area identified for the workshop, the railway line determines processes of deformation and rotation of urban components, making it a true architectural challenge to design new projects. Taking this feature into account, the objective of the workshop is to define what could be called an Anti-Project: in other words, it aims at designing a new Landscape Building located next to the railway tracks.

The workshop Stratify | Designing the Urban Contemporaneity will be conducted by Marco Scarpinato | AutonomeForme with the collaboration of Lucia Pierro and Zakaria Haouari. Stratify | Designing the Urban Contemporaneity is open to students, architects, town planners and all those who are interested in thinking about the contemporary city.
