Patrice Bäumel / City Tape Amsterdam

Patrice Bäumel je 1996. iz Njemačke došao u Amsterdam s namjerom da tamo ostane šest mjeseci. Patrice i dan-danas živi u Amsterdamu. Miks inspiriran tim gradom slušamo ovaj petak u rubrici Mixed Up.

Amsterdam is almost a village, but with all the advantages of a cosmopolitan city. I love the positive vibe of this place, the cultural openness, the location in the heart of Europe and a huge electronic music scene that provides plenty of opportunity for work and entertainment.

Amsterdam is a continuously changing place, it feels like construction never stops. The periphery keeps expanding, especially the northern part of town is growing rapidly. Yet it’s refreshing how little the essence of the city has been touched. I love the pace of the city. We don’t rush things, we cruise. We prefer not to work insanely long hours. The quality of life is excellent, there is room to breathe. And it has the best-connected airport in the world, which makes my work a lot easier.

Places that inspire me most are those wonderful patches of nature at the fringes of the city, like the Twiske nature reserve which is an insane bird watching destination. Modern art is another way for me to reset my brain, the Stedelijk Museum and the photography museum FOAM are my favourites. – Patrice Bäumel
