Vision on the southern city edge of Amersfoort
marco.broekman urbanism research architecture has been asked by Habitoo to develop a vision for the "City Edge Amersfoort Zuid" (''Kernrandzone Amersfoort Zuid'') The municipality of Amersfoort has already indicated the potential of the area around the Stichtse Rotonde within the spatial agenda for 2016, whereby an 'exploration of the opportunities for the core edge zone vision ' is defined. "The number of people working in the Stichtse Rotonde area is equal to that of the working district De Isselt. This environment has traditionally been a place for institutions, research centers and conference centers. However, infrastructure is also dominant in this area and disturbed the relationship between city and landscape. There are great opportunities in improving recreational connections with the landscape, new forms of mobility, recreational use, energy generation, employment and new forms of living. All with a new method of co-creation and participation.
