Almere 1

We were able to organize a national Urban Sketchday again! At last, after almost 1 1/2 year. The last one was in Arnhem, october 2019. Seems ages ago. This time Almere, a new town in the polders (below sealevel). The town was started in the 70s as overflow from Amsterdam and Utrecht. And it's filled with modern architecture: a lot of steel, concrete and glass. But also vivid shopping centres, nice lakes, hidden communal gardens and well designed modern houses in very green neighbourhoods. THis is one of those hidden gardens: a housing project and communal area on the roof of a shopping mall. Drawn from a bridge crossing the shopping street.
