Amsterdam- A Thriving City 

This project focuses on the RSA transcript, ‘Ambitious Cities’- particularly the paragraph on how a city thrives in their natural habitat.


This piece of work focuses on one particular city, Amsterdam. Whilst researching Kate Raworth, I came across an initiative she has been part of called “The Doughnut”

“The Doughnut of social and planetary boundaries envisions a world in which people and planet can thrive in balance – in other words, it offers a compass for guiding 21st century prosperity. “
Through this initiative I came across a PDF document outlining Amsterdam's Portrait and how Amsterdam is becoming a thriving city.

The final outcome is an A3 printed map of Amsterdam's thriving city efforts. This piece was created from collage, ink, gouache, colouring pencils and finished digitally on Procreate.
