The Cuyperspassage, a slow traffic passage at Amsterdam Central Station, is nominated for the European Urban Public Prize 2018. Cuyperspassage is a tunnel at Amsterdam Central Station that connects the city and the waters of the IJ-river. Since the end of 2015 it has been used by large numbers of cyclists, some 15,000 daily, and pedestrians 24 hours a day. This ‘slow traffic corridor’ was exactly what many users of the city felt was lacking back then. What once was by necessity a left or right turn is now, at long last, straight ahead. The tunnel is clad on one side by nearly 80,000 Delft Blue tiles: a true Dutch spectacle at a central spot in Amsterdam. We have designed this passage together with Irma Boom Office
The award-giving ceremony will take place on the 20th of June at the Centre of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB). We are looking forward to it and honoured to be nominated.
