Well this is quite lovely, as created by Sophie Valla Architects:
“the construction of the north-south subway presented amsterdam north with the opportunity to turn the center of district into a park. sinking the nieuwe leeuwarderweg highway by seven meters allowed to merge three existing green spaces to create a central recreational zone for the residents of the area. located in a site where two gas stations from the eighties were going to be demolished, buildings mirror each other on both sides of the entrance – uniquely suited for public gathering.”

I’ve been listening to this quite a bit while I get my work done. Really fantastic stuff. Made even better by the fact that you can download much of their stuff quite easily (and freely most of the time at the link below). Really love their artwork as well; entirely adds to the listening experience. They are from Germany.
