Westergasfabriek

Map
41 Pazzanistraat, Amsterdam,

Amsterdam began to reclaim the derelict 19th-century Western Gas Factory in the early 1990s, cleaning up pollution, laying out parks, and inviting entrepreneurs and artists to redevelop it. Today, it’s home to a vibrant mish-mash of cinemas, galleries, shops, restaurants, and cultural organizations. The surrounding 34-acre park by designer Kathryn Gustafson blends the industrial surroundings with wild flower meadows and examples of digital art, making the green lawns prime real estate for outdoor lounging. At night, the exhibition venues get especially busy with a variety of cutting-edge DJs, bands, and theater performances.
