The Dutch newspaper 'Het Parool' brings the news that the first smart 'Amsterdeck' will be placed in Amsterdam soon. The Amsterdecks project aims to offer insights in the water quality and the accessibility of the public waters of Amsterdam for its citizens and visitors.
In the long term, the project will contribute to cleaner waters in Amsterdam to make them accessible as swimwater. To make this possible, Amsterdecks will develop activities in which architecture and Civic Tech are used as methods and in which the target group(s) will play a central role in the design process.
The first deck will be placed this Summer near the Nieuwe Meer, a popular swimming spot in the city. More information is available in de Dutch version of this news item.
