Memories of A City

Impressive portal city for the local memories and narratives of different areas in Amsterdam:

Geheugen van West” and “Geheugen van Oost“, literally, the memory of respectively West and East (administrative areas in Amsterdam)

With stories, pictures, archive data, and an easy, interactive platform.

Many stories present perspectives on the city with immeasurable value, and with an enormous richness of detail – from a tram accident in 1957 to more recent reports (from 2013) on engaging locals in planning.

Begs the question to what extent, and how, such rich information and the user base of the website are used in the planning of Amsterdam.
