I found it interesting how the water is integrate into the city, reinforcing the idea I had about the city almost seems to be structured like an onion. The use of bridges is also really unique, Joppe explained how they have been integrated into the neighborhoods, and I’ve always found canals cool, so it’s interesting how they’ve incorporated that into the city. It makes you think what internal travel and trade would look like here when these were built, and concepts from city planning in general could even suggest this method was used to reduce traffics on the main roads. In the Delta Urbanisms readings, the idea of global trade was discussed as the waterways of Amsterdam were built around the industry. Similarly form Joppe’s explanation, it’s interesting to see how the water connects different parts of the city internally, reinforcing the idea that different markets were able to use these canals for trade and such.
