Project info

In Docklands, I research the spatial planning in Amsterdam, particularly on the waterfront. Since city planners are re-evaluating these area's and redeveloping for real estate purposes, the environment is rapidly changing. Current inhabitants have to move. Old places which were given new purposes are replaced by newly build condos. But, new plans are reconsidered and the influence of the citizens' initiatives are evaluated. This project focusses upon those initiatives and citizens. As a photographer I am closely related to the subject, as I am one of the citizens in this area, and these developments are directly related to my personal life and environment.
