“First we shape our buildings, and then our buildings shape us”
The former Citroënbuilding (‘The Garage’) next to the Olympic Stadion in Amsterdam is a beautiful monumental iconic building. The building reopened its doors in 2000 after a great renovation. Nowadays different companies are working in this building and share the iconic ramp and entrance as a public meeting space.
By adding green, with keeping the architecture and history in mind, the public space became a pleasant place with human scale.
