SLOTERDIJK PUBLIC SPACE
Making use of the potential in the different levels in the urban landscape we propose establishing
a fine masked bicycle network, reinforcing the profile of Sloterdijk as an area built up around
infrastructure with a retro futuristic fascination for elevated roads, viaducts and bridges.
The spaces created under and around the new infrastructure make it possible to introduce programme
such as lunch cafes, kiosks and bicycle storages, which currently do not exist. The addition of
programme will generate part of the financing for the bicycle network and create a pleasant human
scale public space which can work as catalyst for the general improvement of the image of Sloterdijk.
