After 22 years the Amsterdam metro link from the north to the south was. Benthem Crouwel Architects designed seven metro stations for the line: Noord, Noorderpark, Amsterdam Central Station, Rokin, Vijzelgracht, de Pijp, and Europaplein. Two stations above ground and five stations underground, along a route that is almost ten kilometers long. Amsterdam residents, commuters, tourists, day trippers, and metro admirers can now travel from the north to the south in just 15 minutes.
Thanks to a new engineering technique of tunnelling shields that was developed in the late nineties, it became possible to create tunnels - at certain levels even 30 meters deep - in Amsterdam's wet and unstable ground.
Each station is unique. At the same time, all stations are related to each other, and share a main architectural concept: the shortest possible connection between the underground platform and street level, and a logical routing that flows in one continuous movement. Travelers are able to find their way intuitivel with the use of daylight.
A special artwork that identifies with the location and offers orientation to the travelers, was commissioned for each individual station.
