In september architect, urban design and landscape architecture students at the Academie van Bouwkunst in Amsterdam will start working on the subject of Buitenpoorten; the gateways to the outdoors. A Buitenpoort is a station bordering nature conservation areas and landscapes of significance in the Metropolitan Region Amsterdam. This studio is focused on Station Castricum. Located at the Noordhollands Duinreservaat with dunes, beach and forests with a lot of reliëf. The assignment is to design the station environment in such a way that it becomes a Buitenpoort. Curieus? In 8 weeks time we will see the results!
