ALMERE OOSTERWOLD

PIONEERING ORGANIC URBAN DEVELOPMENT

about

This short documentary explores facts and feelings of the first crowd-founded project of Almere Oosterwold, in the province of Flevoland, Netherlands. This adaptive and organic urban development is a radically liberate place where you have the right to define your own living space. Oosterwold celebrates individual desire: You can build whatever you want; in whatever shape you like; you decide how to use your space and how to behave. You can build a home of your dreams – a dome, a castle, or a simple prefab house. If you are happy living in a tent, that’s okay too.  One can call it I-Land.
