In addition to the latest technologies the building features alternative heating and cooling methods.

The metal clad, curved futuristic shape derives from the concept that the vertical and horizontal parts of the building form one continuing inside-out-turned shape.  These integrated volumes form the basis for the spatial structure of the interior. All materials used are recyclable or have a low environmental impact.

The layout of the building functions as a basis for the different innovative technologies exhibited.  The entrance, reception, and vertical infrastructure, stairs and elevators, form the inner volumes.

The restaurant and other public and secondary facilities, the auditorium, event hall, exposition room, administration and kitchen, are located in between.

Living Tomorrow Amsterdam has an exhibition period of 5 years, after which the project will be closed. During this period the displayed concepts will be constantly evolving and adapted to the latest developments.

Living Tomorrow opened to the public January 2004. During the weekend the complex is open for the general public, during the week upon reservation for groups, pupils/students and professionals.

Reservations can be made via livtom.nl
