AHMM’s Amsterdam Research Trip

To celebrate the practice’s 25th birthday, AHMM headed to Amsterdam this month on a curated research tour of the architecture and culture of the city. Following a series of bike and boat tours around both the historic old town and the new architectural developments of the Eastern Docklands, staff were welcomed by the University of Amsterdam (UvA) for a look around the recently completed Phase 1 of AHMM's UvA reinvention project at Roeterseilandcampus and a reception ceremony in the glazed, refectory and social space. A particular highlight was a speech given by Norbert Gawronski, the building's original architect. All in all, it was undoubtedly our most ambitious research trip yet; 275 people travelled to Amsterdam and back, including over 50 who made the journey by bike.
