The regeneration of the former construction harbor of Almere City integrates environment and a new CASLA Architecture Center. The design aims at maximum water experience: people get to enjoy the Weerwater along several boardwalks, from the quay and on top of the building. The square continues over the roof of the Architecture Center like parquet flooring made of dark narrow bricks.

Do you know a harbour where ships won't sail?
