BrainTraining the Haarlem way
Nobody questions the importance of the metropolitan region around Amsterdam. It is simply an essential development for the position of and future of Amsterdam in an increasingly global economy. In that respect it is also undeniably important for the inhabitants of Haarlem, specifically for those who live & work on the east banks of the Spaarne river. But how to bridge the gap between metropolitan ambition and the nodes of inhabitants of the East of Haarlem who do not see their collection of very specific, local neighbourhoods as being part of an international spatial strategy?

Abbink x De Haas developed a series of BrainTraining excercises as a spatial stategy for Haarlem East, together with urban planners, artists, inhabitants, developers, sociologists and infrastructural experts. Contact us for the complete essay!
