Description

Text by Joost Glissenaar: A folded ribbon parallel to the van Harinxmakanaal. The van Harinxmakanaal is expanded as far as the ribbon. (ignoring the limits of the site?). In four "armpits" of the ribbon a neighbourhood square is made. Maximizing contact with the water is an important goal of the project. The new channel bank becomes a new active waterfront. The housing units embrace the bays creating a variety of spaces. The courtyards on the south side of the ribbon will be an urban garden which increases the neighbourhood feeling. The housing units are based on a flexible system of modules.
