De Citadel Almere – Description
Located at the heart of the new town of Almere, the dual-purpose block designed by Christian de Portzamparc fits into Rem Koolhaas’ multi-layered urban plan. The block is fragmented by the crossing of two pedestrian high streets built onto a structural plate, which, below, accommodates the public car network and car parks.

Above the high streets, colorful houses are distributed around a large convex meadow, preserving the intimacy of the inhabitants.
