2009 – Regeneration De Wierden, Almere Haven

Gert BreugemNews


Part of the integral approach in upgrading a housing settlement both physically and socially.
A strategy was developed for urban transformation. The aim was to develop new
housing and stimulate transformation.
In spatial vision The Wierden project is a good example of proposals for spatial measures done in this area as part of the integrated community development. This is a typical plan product when it is compared to the regular spatial visions in Almere, but it is rather specific when it comes to the spatial measures that Wierden seeks within the next few years: a spatial vision, based partly on the Almere Principles, a substantial contribution to the further sustainable development of the Wierden.
