Temporary Courthouse (Tijdelijke Rechtbank) Amsterdam

Featured image


What is the goal of the project?

Our goal is to develop buildings that are entirely circular. Not only parts of the building should be circular but the entire building! The Temporary Courthouse Amsterdam is the first example of such a building.

What is the result of the project?

The city will be able to adapt easier to future developments with circular buildings that behave like reusable products (building-as-a-product).

Who initiated the project and which organizations are involved?

Rijksvastgoedbedrijf (RVB)
dpcp b.v., a joint venture of cepezedprojects b.v. develop/design/build and Du Prie Bouw & Ontwikkeling

What is the next step?

Make more building-as-a-product projects on other sites and in other cities and make the product even more adaptive and intelligent.

What can other cities learn from your project?

The circular economy is more effective on a product level. Nowadays many are focussing on the circular economy on the level of materials (recycling). The development of a flexible, intelligent and adaptive building-as-a-product will enable us to take the circular economy in the building industry to the next level.
