As part of the summer program of Zone2Source, Krijn Christiaansen and Cathelijne Montens (KCCM) have been researching the history of the Amstelpark over the past few months. The Amstelpark 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?
Archival research and fieldwork led to tentative strategies to provide this heritage with a new context and thus create a renewed experience of the park.
These strategies are the starting point for a discussion in which four experts reflect on the working methods and give answers to what the meaning of the spatial and innovative heritage of this Floriade can be.
