Floriade trash and treasures

Floriade trash and treasures
As part of the summer program of Zone2Source in 2015, Krijn Christiaansen & Cathelijne Montens (KCCM) researched the history of the Amstelpark, that was established for a horticulture exhibition, the Floriade, in 1972. Many residues of this Floriade are, although sometimes neglected, still visible in the park. Should we simply leave them aside or can they be a point of departure for developing new scenarios?

Here you will find the five reconstructions and the exhibition. KCCM will continue their research as part of Exploded View (2018-2020).
