Description

Text by Joost Glissenaar: The project aims to be a flexible, evolving urban plan which can anticipate on future developments. The round islands are more than objects: besides housing each island accommodates a public function which acts as a catalyst for social life. The islands are related to each other on different levels: socially, infrastructural etc. Together they create a network. The housing is located on the outside of the circle so a maximum free space is created in the middle to allow maximum interaction between the inhabitants and a maximum waterfront is created on the edge. The project is a statement against urban sprawl and aims to become a sustainable landmark.
