Pampus Expansion Plan

Sometimes architects are like prophets. Like a vertebrate animal, this city stretches out in the intense blue water of the IJ. Here a mega-city for 350,000 inhabitants is established as an expansion of Amsterdam. The backbone consists of motorways and a monorail. Behind towering blocks of flats lie the residential districts, shielded from the traffic artery and oriented towards the water. Pampus is the glorification of the mobility that would make the total urbanisation of the Netherlands possible. In scale it cannot be compared with IJburg, the Amsterdam begun in 1999, but Pampus cast its shadow far into the future.
