Play the City offers a circular city tour of the up and coming Buiksloterham area – the largest scale of circular city experiment in the Netherlands

Want to see Europe’s largest housing development made out of sustainably sourced wood? Want to learn more about alternative office parks made out of houseboats? Does the idea of a sustainable floating village interest you? Together with our research into the area, Play the City will provide you with valuable insight into the way in which forces are being joined to achieve the ambitions and goals set out for this exciting new area of development in Amsterdam. This is done with a circular city tour. The City of Amsterdam wants to accelerate the sustainability of the capital. In 2020 the city aims to generate 20% more renewable energy per capita and will use 20 % less energy.

Buiksloterham in Amsterdam North has been identified as a living lab for circular area development, setting out ambitious goals towards closed system flows and resource management. Based on the circular economy model, the development of this area with its polluted land stretches and open spaces will become the center of the implementation of new clean technologies and a hub for the closure of urban material cycles, serving as the largest scale of a live circular citymaking experiment.

The area is buzzing with activity, new developments are rapidly taking shape, entrepreneurs are passionately self-building their dream homes and housing corporations are joining forces with self-builders. Investment in technologies are setting new building standards and development initiatives are setting new standards for partnership collaboration models.
