The article analyses development and recent projects to modify two important concentrations of peripheral activity in the urban region of Amsterdam: the Schiphol airport city, with the activities located around the airport, and the Arena area with large-size commercial and entertainment areas constructed close to the Arena multi-functional stadium. After the rapid growth in the economy and in settlements experienced by the region in the 1990s, the emerging external centres are now considered as preferred areas for the construction of the contemporary city, with intervention to physically modify the spaces and the elements of which it is composed in compliance with the general strategies for the region formulated in the ‘Opting for urbanity Structure Plan’ (2003-2010) and in the recent ‘Structure Visie’ (2011).
