Sustainable architectonic gem
Reborn as Capital C Amsterdam, the former Diamond Exchange is once more part of Amsterdam as a centre for the creative industry. The historic building, from 1911, had its original grandeur restored after a radical renovation, commissioned by Zadelhoff B.V. and Sijthoff Media and designed by ZJA in collaboration with Heyligers architects and Braaksma & Roos architecture bureau. It is now crowned with a contemporary, characterful and parametrically designed dome of steel and glass, developed in cooperation with Octatube. Glittering like a diamond, this ‘High Light’ presents one of the most spectacular views of the city and reflects its present and its past.
Before the world’s footlights
ArchDaily is the biggest architecture platform in the world. International and frequently visited, it believes that in these times of transition it is more important than ever to share knowledge and inspiration. Now especially, transformations of the built environment and the building sector, which are essential for our way of life, offer hope for the future. The Building of the Year Awards therefore have an essential part to play, not just for a new generation of architects, designers and clients but for everyone who is interested in how we live, where we live and where we go from here.
