The QBF: Amsterdam Osdorp

Amsterdam Osdorp from The QBF on Vimeo.

I’m a huge MVRDV fan. In fact, when I was in Holland after college, I spent most my time visiting their projects. One of those projects is featured in this The QBF video. The Wozoko housing is an elderly retirement compound with massive faux-cantilevers and brightly-colored balustrades. Here’s a little background on the rest of the video:

The city district Amsterdam Osdorp recently merged with Slotervaart and Geuzenveld-Slotermeer and was given the name Amsterdam Nieuw-West. This change also meant the end of 20 years of restructuring urbanized areas. To celebrate everything achieved, a book was published. ‘The Metamorphosis of Osdorp’ gives an overview of the architectural highlights. PlusOne was asked to create an intriguing video.

Great use of tracking and compositing. Makes me want to get back over to the NL again!
