Atlas of edges: regional analysis and representation
In just eight weeks, a group of 18 landscape and urbanism students of the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture made a courageous attempt to understand a very complex region, east of Amsterdam. What’s at stake in the Diemerscheg area, why does it look the way it looks today, and what is its potential? To do this, each of the participants had to acquire new skills: drawing styles, using geographical data, thinking in ecosystems, making regional prototypes and engaging in a clear dialogue with experts. Besides this, they had to work as a collective. The storylines of the five working groups, including maps and diagrams, were assembled into this final document: the Atlas of Edges.
