[signage] Navigating by numbers

During the military past, all buildings were numbered, street names do not exist. That’s why the wayfinding system is based on these numbers. All buildings have large building signs, except for Building 039, which will have signs soon too. A new map of the Marineterrein has been made and will be installed this month. More signposts and new door signs will follow.  You can download the new map of the Marineterrein Amsterdam here.

Please follow these guidelines;

  • It is crucial to mention the number of your building in all publications.
  • Put in a backlink to the Marineterrein on your website


  • [the name of your company]

New @Marineterrein: Next Nature Network

Next Nature Network is a network of makers, thinkers, educators and supporters. With members in 44 countries, NNN is the international network for anyone interested in the debate on our future – in which biology and technology are fusing. NNN headquarters is based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, planet Earth, the Universe.

In a landscape of traditional nature organizations, NNN is the only group that approaches the concept of nature in a new manner. Preserving nature is of great importance, but we must also dare to look ahead. Will we grow meat without slaughtering animals? Embrace the robot as a colleague? Earn ECO coins for sustainable actions? Will men have babies one day? We want to go forward – not back – to nature.

When: from April 18 – May 19
>>>> Special invitation to all community membersApril 25 The Race Track Community Battle, 17.00 – 20.00 hours <<<<<
>>>> 1 sign up = 1 drink on the house; (mention: The Race Track) <<<<

Kids these days may be addicted to video games, but there’s no substitute for playing in the real world. Small but very fast cars driving around a beautifully engineered race track. The drivers are wearing video-glasses and view the race track as if they were sitting inside the race car. This technique is known as first-person-view, or FPV in short. It creates an experience of playing a videogame in real life. With The Race Track, La Bolleur aims to bring back the joy of building and take the virtual back to reality.

Enjoy the ride!
