In the 1960s, the Netherlands discovered vast reserves of natural gas and began to close its coal-gas plants. Westergasfabriek, a 19th-century factory on the outskirts of central Amsterdam, halted operations and in 1981 the site was rezoned as recreation space. The Westergasfabriek Cultuurpark is a radical regeneration of a former gasworks - 13 hectares of cutting edge public parkland. The scheme now offers aquatic gardens in former gasholders, market squares, an events field capable of accommodating 10,000 people, woodland areas, a stream and water gardens. The park also includes cafes, restaurants, an art gallery, a playground, cinema, dance studio, art house, food laboratory and a children’s museum. Gustafson Porter, together with Mecanoo, have developed a refined plan that is faithful to the original proposal in its creation of park zones that relate specifically to existing site elements and contexts.
