Excursion / In-Houseday BNSP

On the 29th of March, we will visit the future Floriade Exposition terrain in Almere, together with BNSP (Beroepsvereniging voor Nederlands Stedebouwkundigen en Planologen; an association for Dutch city engineers and planners) and our sister association Mundus from Nijmegen. The Floriade is an international exhibition and garden festival in the Netherlands, held every 10 years. In 2022 it will be held in Almere. We will have a tour and presentation in the KAF ArchitectuurStudio (a studio for architecture) by Odette Breijinck, project manager House of Arts.

Afterward, we will visit 'Oosterwold' by bus. This is a new neighborhood of Almere! However, Oosterwold is not just an ordinary neighborhood; this neighborhood is built 'bottom-up' by private owners and not 'top-down' planned by the municipality like your regular neighborhood. Homeowners take care of their own roads, sewage and energy supply in collaboration with their neighbors. All this creates a really unique place to live in and an even more interesting place to visit!
