The design collective by Bali is a group of architects, landscape architects and a product designer. As an Amsterdam based collective, by Bali feels the need to advise the city for new, bright and inspiring plans and designs.
by Bali provokes and inspires the city with projects like a 'living bridge' over the Amsterdam IJ, a metropolitan park in Amsterdam West, a leisure park on the infrastructure of Amsterdam and its main business area, a youth detention centre in a residential block in the east of Amsterdam and a mosque at the Amsterdam canals.
All of the above projects, are examples how by Bali optimizes the existing urban tissue, so people can meet, exchange ideas and share the urban culture.
Different cultures and backgrounds meet unexpectedly in the middle of the IJ or in a modern public mosque in the historic centre of Amsterdam. Juvenile delinquents reintegrate in a existing housing area and business and leisure meet in a mixed-use city park. by Bali uses the city of Amsterdam as a playground and laboratory for international assignments.
