Oosterwold is Almere’s latest polder to be developed. Its DIY urban plan, proposed by MVRDV, fuelled a heated debate within Dutch Planning practice. Could self-conscious and responsible residents build an entire city without the middle men? To simulate the DIY development and communicate the plan with the public, Play the City has been running a serious game in the exhibition space ‘Making Almere’. The next session will be played with Plan Bureau voor de Leefomgeving, the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, on October 10th.
