UNStudio designs 1.5km cable car system for Amsterdam

Dutch architect bureau UNStudio has designed a 1.5km-long cable car for Amsterdam called the IJbaan to link two growing residential areas: Amsterdam-West and Amsterdam-Noord/NDSM.

It is described by UNStudio as a “fast, green and future-proof public transport connection”.
Two stations will be built on either side of the NDSM Marina, with the possibility of further stations being added in the future.

To allow for large ships to pass along the waterway, supports will vary in height, measuring 46m to 105m on either side of the water, and up to 136m in the middle.
