Play the City has created a serious game to simulate possible future scenarios for Almere Oosterwold. It is called: Play Oosterwold! Almere 2.0 and MVRDV are responsible for the design-rules. Play Oosterwold tests if these rules have the desired effect.
Are you curious about the first masterplan in Dutch history shaped by planning rules instead of an actual plan? Then Play Oosterwold! to see the next generation Dutch city master-planned by its citizens.
Build your future in Play Oosterwold!
A field of corn as far as the eye can see – or a little circle of land completely hidden by trees? A new home, a studio, a shop, an animal farm or a greenhouse? Living in close quarters – or spread far apart?
In Play Oosterwold! There is no master plan. Instead, you are provided with simple rules and conditions to shape and build your own plot. For your dreams to become real, you will need to compete or collaborate with your future neighbours. YOU, along with fellow inhabitants, will masterplan Oosterwold!
