On 24th March, the gFT group has travelled to Amsterdam for a two-day tour to discover the city's most innovative building façades (the full itinerary is available here). Amongst the most interesting buildings, the group has visited the Mahler 4 complex, where different famous architects were involved in the developement of a new mixed-use district, and the Conservatory of Amsterdam, where dichroic glasses were used to provide a new visual effect.
The group has also had the opportunity to explore innovative ways of using composite materials, such as the Amazing Whale, a bus station made from curved GFRP sandwiches, and the renovation of the historic building of the Stedelijk Museum, where the use of the composite material becomes a way to expand and establish a new relationship with the existing buildings.
