In March 2013, we took our students to the new town of Almere, for a 5-day workshop, organized in collaboration with the International New Town Institute and the municipality of Almere. The workshop was focused on a study to the spatial possibilities of two areas, located in the new city district Almere Poort, namely Cascade Park East and Middenkant.
The students developed a first idea for the development of these location, while exploring new possible urban models that respond to the current Dutch housing situation. Eventually they presented the results to representatives of the planning and development department of the city. Want to know more about this study? We now published the complete report on our Issuu account. (unfortunately in Dutch only)
