Part of my programme here in Amsterdam involves the sLIM Lecture Series, where internationally-renowned academics and urban planners present lectures to masters students in metropolitan studies and urban planning. This year's lecture series is on modernism, and, fittingly, the lectures take place at the Garage Notweg, a creative studio and workshop housed in a decidedly modernist-looking garage.
The building itself is located in the Osdorp neighbourhood of Amsterdam. The neighbourhood is significant in the sense that most of the buildings in the neighbourhood are modernist mass housing developments that are largely populated by immigrants to the Netherlands.
After last week's lecture, I decided to go for a walk and check out the neighbourhood's architecture.
You can view all of the photographs from this collection in a set that I've posted on Flickr.
