Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam celebrated their 5 year existence in 2012. Pakhuis de Zwijger is a platform of inovation for design and creativity. instead of throwing a big celebration party, they decided to do the opposite.
They held 20 small gatherings with 5 of Amsterdams greatest designers, architects and creative thinkers. So in total a group of 100 people, discussed for 5 hours during a 5 course meal what should happen to Amsterdam in the upcoming 5 years.
The idea's that came out of these discussions created a manifest for the future of Amsterdam. The publication of the 5 year existence is not about what has happened the past 5 years, but what the future holds in store for the city of Amsterdam and Pakhuis de Zwijger.
The publication was released in the spring of 2012. It is can be read online at http://www.bladerboekje.nl/vooramsterdam.
