In an era where the urban planning tools of the past have become redundant and ineffective architects and urban planners require new tools to address todays digital urban reality.
The pilot project Amstel3D covers over 40 ha with 115 office buildings and approx. 26.000 employees, 200 companies, 80 real estate owners and 25 financiers.
