Nominatie ARC18 Innovatie Award

Inspired by the sustainable and hospitality ambition of Xander Bueno de Mesquita, the Smart City Kitchen was asked to make the QO building a connected place in the local neighborhood and the city of Amsterdam. The Amstelkwartier association was established  (vereniging Amstelkwartiermakers) with the QO hotel as one of the leading members. The result; not only the technical loops (energy, food, waste, water) are connected  in the QO building itself. The QO hotel is also part of the social and economic systems in the city. The QO has become a LOCAL place with a GLOBAL meaning..

The circular and smart city is still growing, step by step.. thanks Xander  for the years of collaboration! To be continued…
