A few weeks ago

 Few weeks ago the shopping centre of Almere was still in sunshine. Here the main shopping street with the green mall roofs. Now it is cold and a little deserted.

  2. Hai Kitty.
    On the edge of the roofs on the photo you see housing and the people living in those apartments have a little garden on the roof. The houses are above the mall. Under the ground floor for pedestrians and the shops are garages and roads for car traffic, public transport and transportation of goods. The whole idea for the city center was thought out by Rem Koolhaas and designed by Portzamparc , a french architect.

  6. And I forgot to mention all the people on the street, who look almost fake like you see in city/architectural planning models...

  7. I really like this architecture. Especially the use of the dark wood and bio-mass roofs.
