The city district Amsterdam Osdorp merged with Slotervaart and Geuzenveld-Slotermeer and was given the name Amsterdam Nieuw-West. This change meant the end of 20 years of restructuring urbanized areas.
A book was published, which provides an overview of the architectural highlights. We were asked to create a film featuring the buildings we find most characteristic. We chose to put emphasis on the architects of the buildings and especially its inhabitants and surroundings. We decided to combine live-action video with 2D and 3D animation. This allowed us to complement reality with our interpretation of the most important factors of restructuring urbanized areas.
