Silos Transformed into 90 foot Climbing Gym
The city of Amsterdam has held an ‘adaptive reuse design competition’ to redesign two abandoned sewage treatment silos in Zeeburgereiland. With one of the three silos set to be converted into an office building, the remaining towers silos were open to proposals. Amsterdam-based NL Architects submitted a design that would see the structures adapted into a ‘Cultural Silo’ and a ‘Climbing Silo’.
NL Architect’s design was not chosen for the competition, the Amsterdam City Council choosing the Annie MG Schmidt House design by Arons en Gelauff.
